    Says it is out of print, limited availability. You can also try Park Press, Waite Park, MN as they were the ones who printed my copy.
    One of my favorite reads, for sure. m

    Yeah, I hear it's a must read. Did you have them print it for you after they stopped print?? Maybe I'll try and write them. Or..
    ... yours wouldn't happen to be for sale would it haha?

    Sorry, but that isn't how book publishing works. As the author, Dick retains the copyright to the book, not the printer. In addition, printing a single copy or even a handful is cost prohibitive. To bring the cost down to something manageable, you'd need to print at least several hundred -- and this varies by printer. Some may want a thousand plus.

    Your best bet is to keep looking on eBay or other book resale sources and hope a copy becomes available.

    It's a long shot, but you could call Bay Store Resort and ask the owner Frank if he has any?

    The author can self-publish on Amazon Kindle digitally. The book will never go out of print and it is free to do.

    OK thanks for the suggestions. I'll see if I can get a hold of Frank or Mr. Pearson. Is it Walsh's Bay Store Camp in MN?

    Yep. Frank Walsh at Walsh's Bay Store Camp in MN. He can possibly get you in touch with Pearson as well.
