Hi,

Does anyone know where to find the "First Kyu" novel? Or as it seems to be out of print, maybe [removed by admin]

Thanks!

It's not available legally as a PDF.

I got my copy from Amazon. Just wait until it's a reasonable price, since some chancers list it at $999. I got mine for $17 including shipping (NEW).

What would you be willing to pay to get it?

I would say the normal price of a novel...In Amazon UK it's being sold at £400...+-600$

Wow didn't realize this ended up as a rare book. I remember buying it from Amazon for real cheap not too long ago. I can't seem to find the book at my home for some reason, either lost it during the move or I guess I might have given 400 pounds away.

WorldCat lists a few libraries as owning copies. Perhaps an interlibrary loan could be arranged? A bit "prehistoric", yes, but certainly effective!

I think lots of Go books probably classify as rare. Rare meaning not many of them in circulation (compared to say books on other topics such as gardening!). Anything that's a bit niche tends to attract chancers trying their luck. I managed to get hold of two copies under $20 (one seller wouldn't ship internationally so they had to cancel) very easily.

So hold fire, and shop global :)

abebooks is sometimes useful in finding books. There's a copy on there now, for $57 http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=18317294600&searchurl=sts%3Dt%26tn%3Dfirst%2520kyu
but I wouldn't pay that much for it myself.

seeing as how you mentioned Amazon UK - you can also get that copy through searching abebooks.co.uk

AbeBooks is my second choice when looking for a book. www.bookfinder.com is my first.

I love this little book. I understand it's fiction, but I've always wondered what percentage of it was autobiographical. It felt very... personal.

Woohoo, jackpot! A trip back to the parent's turned lucrative (in theory.) I found my copy of First Kyu!
