You may be able to find that on Amazon. I've seen used books, including some of the Double Diamond books, on there before.

I would sell my copies of the Double Diamond Saga for $40. They are non-canon and really not that good. I have kids to feed.

Fun reads! Don't go in expecting canon lore and they're quite enjoyable. ;)
Had to sell my collection of FR at one point, but I made sure to keep these, just so I'd never have to track them down again! (I regret selling the "Murder In..."s so hard though!)

Indeed. There's another set on there right now that the seller is asking $250 for them. He's been trying to sell them for a couple of years, now... I've personally emailed the guy and told him that he was asking almost 4 times the highest price I'd ever seen the series go for, but I never got a response. And obviously, either he's really stubborn, or he's entirely oblivious to the fact it usually goes for much, much less.

I guess the rarity of the Double Diamond books is what makes them a bit more expensive, because frankly I think they are the worst Realms books ever written.

They're Realms Apocrypha. This mysterious, rejected-from-canon nature makes them highly intriguing to some.

On top of that, at least as far as your namesake goes, they're also what might've been, had other things not taken place. They're alternity.

Nice find. With 6 days remaining though I bet the price will jump up considerably.

Maybe, maybe not. I've seen things go for insane prices one day, and very reasonable prices a short time later. I check eBay daily, and have for years, so I've seen a wide range of prices on a lot of things... There's a few exceptions, but they're extremely rare things, like the Planescape Sketchbook or the Fist of Emirikol D20.

Thanks for keeping an eye out on these Wooly! I know that I've mentioned in some other thread that I was having issues finding books from this series, but then again I haven't been putting in a whole lot of effort beyond looking for them when I visit my local used book stores. XD So I, for one, really appreciate what you're doing! :D

I just look on eBay for Forgotten Realms stuff; I'm looking mostly for a couple rare things for myself. But when I see something like this, I make a point of sharing.

Seconded. The first BG novel is the only FR novel I skimmed through and didn't purchase. And I didn't even bother with the second at all.

Well, the second gets better (getting worse would be nigh impossible) but then the third (Throne of Bhaal novelization) gets worse again to the level of the first one.

Tempts me every single time... I've got four of them. I'm missing 2, and 6-9. I just don't know if I want to bother having duplicates or selling said duplicates. If I'd known how hard they would be to come by when I found the 4 I've got at a local used bookstore, I'd have held off and bought the whole set.

Why would they be non-cannon? A couple are written by Ed, so in my mind that instantly makes them cannon - Ed says so, so it is - kind of thing.
