I was trying to get a copy of this book a
while back but it's out of print and used
prices were high (like $30).... I don't 
suppose anyone has an ePub they could
shoot me?  Or is it worth $30 for a 1995
paperback, maybe so...

BTW Mirmir I've read and enjoyed Accelerando
and Diaspora... I'll have to check out the
Jean le Flambeur stuff....
