  • Looking for White Wolf paperbacks....

    Can anybody help me find the last three volumes (13-Legends From the End of Time, 14- Earl Aubec, and 15- Count Brass) of the White Wolf Omnibuses in paperback? I have the whole series in hardcover, but want to collect the paperbacks as well. 1-12 were easy to find, but the last three are tougher. Especially 15 (Count Brass), which I can only find in hardcover for about $100 (did they ever release this one in trade paperback???)

    Thanks,
    - Joe

    Earl Aubec and Count Brass were only issued in hardcover, and (as I remember) there were very few of the Legends from the End of Time in trade.

    At the risk of speaking out of turn (and I certainly apologize if I am), White Wolf is apparently better at publishing games than honoring contracts on omnibus editions.

      Wow, that really sucks. Seems somewhat unprofessional too, as you have alluded to.

      I probably wouldn't have gone and tracked down 1-12 if I knew that, and I'm sure alot of others feel the same. Very irritating. I am glad I already have them all in hardcover though. I just wanted some 'reading copies'.

        It's not the same, I know, but have you considered filling the gaps with the UK Millenium Omnibus editions?

        The Count Brass volume, for example, is on eBay cheaply now, in p/b:

          Hi!

          Just to confirm (and to slightly correct), the last three White Wolf omnibuses (incl. 'Legends...') did not come out in trade-p/b at all.

          Best,


          John.

              Just realise that the Millenium editions are in mass market paperback format and not trade one; they are much smaller than the White Wolf ones. They have great covers though. You might also be interested in The New Nature of the Catastrophe omnibus, which was published only as part of the Millenium series.

                Millenium did hardback, trade paperback and mass market paperback editions, whereas White Wolf only did hardback and trade paperback (in fact they only did hardback of the last two) editions.

                  Just one clarification (and sorry if this has been clarified elsewhere, but I haven't seen such, if so): is the Millenium version of Count Brass identical to the White Wolf version?

                  Thanks,

                    Yes, the text is identical.

                      Thanks! I'd read that there were some edits and so on to the WW versions (I guess one of the bastable books had an extra 20K words in it), so I wanted to make sure I had the most up to date texts.

                        There were a few minor changes to one or two of the omnibus volumes and John Davey, editor of the series, should be able to help there. I did write a lot more of the last Bastable book, The Steel Tsar, to go in the Nomad volume, but that was published in both the UK and US editions.

                          I finally found the link I was looking for:

                          http://homepage.mac.com/antallan/taleotec.html

                          Great site with a good overiew of the entire series and the differences between the American and British omnibuses.

                          Hopefully, that would answer all of your questions :)

                              Interesting site, but is erroneous in one simple manner. The lines it claims to have missing from
                              the Millenium version of 'Legends of the End of Time,' are very much contained in the copy I own.
