A few years ago I read your book, The Lost Tribes of Israel….Found!”  I found it fascinating, and bought another to share with friends.  The “shared” one was read by several of our friends, but has since “disappeared”.  I just loaned our only copy to a new friend and she too found it fascinating and wants her own copy.   We’ve checked all the Internet book cites, and have found it is out of print and the existing available copies are priced at $95!!!  I’m sure when we made the purchase it was about $15.  Is there anyway to get a copy at a reasonable price?

Dear Gray,
A number of people have contacted me with the same request that you made. However, there simply are no more new copies of my book, The “Lost” Ten Tribes of Israel…Found!. After four printings, they have all been sold out for some time. Others have also told me that single copies of my first book are now selling at very high prices on the secondary market…if they can be found at all. However, you do have an attractive alternative.
Currently in print is my four-volume set of books on the same subject as my initial book that is now out of print. The titles of the four-book set are The Origins and Empire of Ancient Israel, Israel’s Lost Empires, Parthia–The Forgotten Ancient Superpower and Israel’s Tribes Today. These newer derivative books include much more information than was in my first book, as well as many photographs and illustrations that were not in my initial book. They also have extensive indexes which my first book did not have. You may obtain the entire set of 4 new books for $80 ($72 plus $8 shipping fees), which is cheaper than the $95 being asked for my less-informative initial book on the used-book market. The newer books can be ordered on-line by following the “books” links at my homepage, or you can send $80 (money order or check) to Steven Collins, PO Box 88735, Sioux Falls, SD  57109-8735.
