Back in October, I thought I had snagged a great deal: A first edition of Philip K. Dick’s Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said for $48.
However, upon getting it, I immediately saw that it was not a first edition. There was no First Edition statement on the copyright page, and code P7 rather than code 050 on page 231, indicating a later printing, as per Levack’s PKD bibliography. So I contacted the seller for a refund.
Despite selling it on false premises, he refused to take it back, and offered an insulting $5 refund through eBay’s arbitration system.
So this is a blog post to warn anyone away from dealing with eBay seller jazzsharkman, AKA
PO Box 1800
Union City, CA 94587
due to his fundamental dishonesty in selling a non-first as a first edition, then refusing to take it back.
I’ll update this page if he ever comes to his senses and sends me a full refund.
