Scott Laming writes “This is a must for all hardcore SF fans. You can buy a first edition copy of every Hugo and Nebula award winner atll at once for $116,530. Check out the First edition Hugo and Nebula Winners at AbeBooks.com.

If money was no object and you wanted to create the ultimate modern science fiction and fantasy rare book collection in a single swoop, then what you need is first editions of all the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novels for a cool $116,530.

The listing includes 126 books covering 82 titles (many titles won both awards), and 95% of the titles are signed or inscribed, and in fine or better condition. When a paperback is the true first edition, then the first hardcover is also included. In some cases, US and UK hardcovers have been included where the paperback is the true first.” Seems a little steep, but they are first editions at least…

    What a waste

    I just don’t get it. There are so many better uses to which that much money could be put. I understand collecting based on scarcity, but I bet you could get every one of those titles for free through a library. In this case, the scarcity is artificial (first edition, signed).
