You know, after I griped about it, I thought... that's fair. The U.S. gets everything else Anderson first. Have a good time, Blumie. :] <p><!--EZCODE HR START--><hr /><!--EZCODE HR END-->"Me no big big potato spook fork tomorrow?

Actually, it <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>is</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--> available here in the States - mine arrived yesterday via abebooks.com. They have a few (3 to be exact) preview copies available. See this link:
<!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://dogbert.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?tn=chuck+dugan" target="top">Abebooks Chuck Dugan is AWOL search</a><!--EZCODE LINK END-->
I've got some scans of the book just in case you think you don't need it! They are links via my school homepage - the resolution is too wide I think to fit on here.
<!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~mthumphr/dugan.jpg" target="top">Pic 1</a><!--EZCODE LINK END-->
<!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~mthumphr/dugan1.jpg" target="top">Pic 2</a><!--EZCODE LINK END-->
<!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~mthumphr/dugan2.jpg" target="top">Pic 3</a><!--EZCODE LINK END-->
<!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~mthumphr/dugan3.jpg" target="top">Pic 4</a><!--EZCODE LINK END-->
So probably a first come, first serve thing on the Abebooks site. It's worth the cheaper than amazon price. Also, it's turning out to be a quick read, BUT, with one or two images every couple of pages, it doesn't feel like a quick read. Excellent binding for those who are into that kind of thing.

michaht! Awesome, thank you!

That first scan -- seems to describe precisely the movie that HvB wanted Wes to make. :) Maybe he will someday.

I've reread the book four more times and it never ceases to amuse me, or fascinate me, for that matter. I love Eric Chase's tendency to keep sharp, crisp lines neat in all his drawings - all very similar to maps. As for his actual maps, they are exceptionally fun to look at and visualize.

If Chuck Dugan were a real person, I would hunt him down and marry him. Legally.
