[quote author=Rainbird  link=1114679193/0#0 date=1114661191]I am looking for a used copy of "The Scotch Game" by Peter Wells (1998), which is out of print. If anyone knows where to get a copy (already tried the usual suspects like ebay, amazon, abebooks etc.) or wants to sell his/her copy for a good price (or borrow it to me), then please let me know.[/quote]
A few months ago I asked at a [i]Chess Direct[/i] bookstall if they had any copies, but to no avail. They said that even Peter Wells himself had asked them the same question!!

A couple of other related threads:

Everyman are scheduling a book on the Scotch in the Starting Out series for August 2005 - but the author is not Wells but rather ChessPub's own John Emms ... a good enough recommendation in itself in view of the quality of most of Emms' work.
  

If sometimes we fly too close to the sun, at least this shows we are spreading our wings.

I experienced similar problems but eventually got one on ebay.  However I believe Wells is working on a sequel which is due to hit the shelves in August.
