Spotted in the wild: Mark Bould, Andrew M Butler, Sheryl Vint and my Fifty Key Figures in Science Fiction (Routledge Key Guides, 2009). Hurrah! 14.99 in paperback, but, well, clearly more valuable than that. How much more valuable? My esteemed co-editor Andrew M. spotted this (since rescinded, I think):

    Damn, this went to the must-order-immediately category. The index looks as promising as it can get (even though Vance seems oddly excluded?).

    And as I had earlier filled my shopping basket with "wish I could buy these" books and didn't notice it before confirming the order, this was quite an expensive buy. :P
