Each time a new printing of one of my books comes out, I'm supposed to get
a copy. Normally I do, but there are occasional snafus, and I recently
realized that I lack a copy of the 5th printing of Effective STL. Worse
yet, my publisher is unable to find one. I'd really like to have a copy of
the 5th printing, so if you have one, I have a deal for you.
I spent the last two days updating ESTL for the upcoming 7th printing (you
can check out the panoply of changes at
http://www.aristeia.com/BookErrata/estl1e-errata_frames.html), and I'm
willing to trade an autographed copy of the new printing (when it comes out
in a few weeks) for a copy of the 5th printing, ideally a 5th printing in
pristine condition -- no writing in or on it, no folded pages, etc. If you
have such a printing and are interested in a trade, please let me know.
