Until mid-2008 Borders website was run by Amazon (it was really Amazon in disguise). Recently they set-up their own - which is run in co-operation with Waterstones IIRC. I had a similar experience around the time of the change-over (I bought an item which spent months 'awaiting dispatch'... turned o...

I just ordered a copy by phone from Waterstone's in Kirkcaldy (number is available off Google) - and they were charging £25.99 I think plus £2.50 postage which is pretty reasonable IMO. So there's still some copies left.

Thank's very much for the warm welcomes. I should add that I'm only a Hibs fans by domicility (living in Edinburgh), being a Berwick Rangers fan by upbringing (in the Borders), and Raith Rovers fan by family tradition.
