For those who might be going to Canada and/or have friends or family that travel there you might want to see what's available at the bookstores there. I know when I was in Vancouver BC in 2006 EC's books were readily available on the shelves at Chapters -- except for TGK which was the one I was looking for. They said they could bring it in for will call though. Also abebooks and alibrus is worth checking out. There seem to be some US sellers bringing in the books from the UK. You pay a shipping charge, but then you don't get hit with the exchange rate either.

All I can say is I'm glad I was greedy and bought every EC book I could get my hands on back in 2006. It appears I could make a tidy profit if not for the fact that there's no way in h*** I'd part with them. :) :)

VAnessa, someone else recommended that site to me and for some reason I never bookmarked it. I have now, thanks!

Misfit, which site did you preorder Time of Singing from? The only place I can find it the UK Amazon site. Are there any others??

I think only Amazon UK and CA have it listed that I've seen, haven't checked the book depository yet.

my mother in law who reads nothing cookbooks and those true crime books about sadistic murderers and so forth by authors like Anne Rule is going to read the Greatest Knight and Scarlet Lion. Ronnie talks about them non stop now and has her interested in them so we'll see how she likes 'em. If so EC you have won over two of the most un-likely but true fans.

I've always wanted to read her books, but availability in USA is difficult. If I want one I'm going to have to order it. I think I'll try the link for The Book Depository that Vanessa posted. Who has bought from them? are they reputable? The big question is which book do I start with? With so many to choose from it's overwhelming.

I buy from Book Depository semi-regularly. They're reputable, and it's amazing how fast the books arrive - within about a week to the USA. I've bought all of EC's non-US releases that way (Time of Singing is still in my basket) as well as other historicals like Margit Sandemo's Ice People series.

When I was in Toronto this past summer, I was seriously tempted by Chapters but didn't end up buying much there. With the free postage, Book Depository was cheaper in most cases.

I use them pretty regularly as well and have never had any issues with them.

I ordered The Time of Singing from the Book Depository and it came within the week in perfectly new condition. I'll definitely order from them in the future when needed. I haven't got The Scarlet Lion, so I'll probably order it from TBD sometime soon.
