The Sea Gull is now available at the Springfield Public Library, in Springfield, Oregon. You can search for it under their Library Catalog. If you like to see this book, you can place an interlibrary loan for the book at your local library. Ask your local library for details and direct them to the Springfield Public Library in Springfield, Oregon website.
Update: On another site today, I had the same person from a silent film group connected with Essanay Crew (that's what they said) complaining about the book price, again.
While they seem to be very interested in the book, to keep coming back, their continued complains will not bring the price lower, because I don't believe in running any business in the red to please some bargain hunters. But if this person is really interested and very hard up for money, they now can interlibrary loan the book.
As for the book being any other form? We have no plans of ever doing that.
And, again, as always, only buy things you can afford and REALLY want. And never get into debt, if at all possible!
UPDATE: We have been awaiting word from our printer on a new price increase which will arrive any day.
Update: On January 1 (or when current stock runs out), the price of The Sea Gull will go up to $49 to cover all the new printing cost, shipping and packaging material cost increases.
