First edition of every Hugo and Nebula Award Winner for $116,530

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…
Star Wars live action series casting under way
by Doc on Mar.10, 2009, under Television
The long awaited (does Lucas ever do anything quickly? At least, except giving the green light to the Star Wars Holiday special?) live action Star Wars series, which took a back seat to The Clone Wars, is currently casting. Script writing has supposedly been underway for over a year, so hopefully it won’t be long before we find out what we are getting – but it still may be a while before we SEE anything, as the plan is still to shoot the entire season before shopping the series.
