Thumbs up John Biggins Books

Have any of you fellows read the books by John Biggins? Otto Prohaska is the protagonist and the stories held my attention. They concern the adventures of an Austrian Naval pilot and submariner in WWI and are, "A Sailor of Austria", "The Two headed Eagle", "The Emperors Colored Coat' and "Tomorrow The World". The last title, I have not read as copies are selling in the $1300.00 range.

Don't give up on "Tomorrow the World". There is an $850 hard cover copy in the US listed on, and a $200 paperback copy in Australia. Must have been a very small print run for such high prices on a book barely 10 years old.

Biggins Books

On another form I have been told that "Tomorrow The World" would be issued in a reprint by Mac Books. I haven't seen anything about that lately.

Some expensive books. Must not have sold very well or there would be more printings. Or a very good book, no one wants to part with.

I was surprized the other week when I looked for a book printed/copyrighted in 1924. It was the "Circus of Dr Lao ". It seems it has been reprinted and was available. So there is hope. I mean, this was not a well known book, even though it was made into a movie.
