I'm still looking for the original Intoxica book to complete my set of the Bum's books. If anyone knows where I may still find a copy at under $100 could you please point me in the direction.

many thanks
Andrew

and yes I do have Remixed (I even have a spare)

That seems crazy. What is the Grog Log or even the original Grog Log (not spiral bound but 8 1/2 by 11) going for? Jeez are people really paying that kind of money out there?

Five hundred dollars? Heck, I think I'll photocopy mine, then put it in a safe deposit box!

It's not worth $500 until someone actually pays it.

But all of the other spiral bounds are still available for about $10, and I just checked that I paid Amazon $8.76 for a new copy less than three years ago.

Was the Intoxica print run much smaller than the other books?

I was going to buy it for $500, until I realized it was $500 and 98 cents.
I mean, that really insulted my intelligence.

Try "Forbidden Planet" comic stores, I picked up multiple copies of "Taboo Table" and "Sippin Safari" in the discount section of the Glasgow store.

It's worth a try.

Ok so how much does this one go for?
To the left is the oldest book I think.

Looks like prices are indeed dropping.
Chapters.ca has an Intoxica! for only $419.09.

These prices are ... crazy. Just a few years back I got this three pack on ebay for $40 and change.

I am no book seller, but these prices must be computer-calculated somehow, maybe by cross-referencing search hits to available copies or whatever. I don't think they reflect what anyone is actually paying. A while back I was looking for a very mundane home repair book for old windows, sort of self-published, with black & white illustrations. Though fairly recently published, it was out of print, and just because of that it had shot up from the 12.95 price to $250.-

I don't believe there is some antiquarian bookseller somewhere looking at a book like this and saying "oooh this is so rare I bet I can get 450.- bucks for this." This must be machine-made pricing --producing the result that the product will just sit there.

Sorry Bigbrotiki, you're wrong wrong wrong and wrong. If anything the prices cited are below value. Intoxica! is well on its way to becoming the most valuable spiral bound paper back in existence.

With that in mind I would like to generously offer my copy of Intoxica for the absurdly low price of $870. Anyone who is interested can PM me. [EDIT: Price changed to reflect
current market prices. You snoozed, you losed.]
