Any way to find out if a book is going to be reprinted? (the book is Tim and Tobias if anyone has any great ideas)

Ds is starting to read, and I think he'd love these. It is exactly his sort of thing.

BUT BUT BUT apparently they are out of print and there are no plans to reprint.

I was wondering if it is possible to contact say the publisher and find out? Would a publisher respond to a question like this? Would I speak to a minion with no idea anyway?

Thoughts please. There was a reprint but they are all sold out (have tried various websites-a few are showing as in stock but then I get an email saying...sorry)

IIRC they are Harry Potter in reading book form. But they are on abe for shock £60 shock

Dazlynne, I would certainly be interested, if they haven't been snapped up already?

Kind regards

I'm still trying to collect Tim & The Hidden People Books. I've got the 1st 2 sets series A & B, except book 1 of series A which I lost along time ago.
Can you please help me?

Hi all you fellow Tim & Tobias Lovers!

Firstly, I am looking for the publisher who owns the rights to these books in 2014. I've contacted a lot of publishers and used the online ISBN search, to no avail. If anyone can help I'd love to hear from you.

Secondly, as for buying the books, I recently bought the whole of Series A, B and C from the Sheffield Oxfam, via ABE Books. They cost £300 per series and they have no stamps, no damage, they're immaculate. Yes, I know, it was a lot of money but for me, what price can I put on my childhood?! The Charity shops are very aware of what price these books now fetch.

Thirdly, Mrs Woolf & the Moonfruit website. Is this website coming soon and do you have a Tim & Tobias website presence, if so, I'd love to know.

BTW: the other Net site listed in this thread doesn't exist anymore

Lastly, these books need to be out there and republished. The amount of interest out there is phenomenal, the publishers are missing a trick!

Oooh I still shudder when I think of the Stump People! I would love to have these!

I've got one. Magic in the wind. In as new condition. Bought it a few years ago brand new and never read it. Its paperback. Is it likely to be worth something?

Does anyone still have these available?

what kind of price would you be willing to pay for the collection that I have? I did put them on eBay last month, but a hoax bidder bid on them (I presume to allow another seller the sole rights to their own listing?) I am in a tug of war with eBay at the moment as they billed me £80 which was the final value fee for them, and then credited it to my selling account, but I rarely sell on eBay sad Depending on where you live, I could possibly arrange to meet you with them and to collect payment?

These are on PDF on eBay now I just bought them last week and they're just how I remember them. I'd be quick though I doubt they'll be around forever.
