^ Thanks. I do love a good Shakespeare adaptation so I might start with that.
Depending on how you define "good Shakespeare adaptation" you may very well hate it!

Is Volume 2 limited to 2000 copies like Volume 1 (at least that’s the number I seem to remember)?

The price did eventually drop for Volume 1 on Base.com (to about 33 pounds, if I remember correctly), and the first set did take about a year to sell out, so it seems worth waiting, but I don’t want to miss it either.

EDIT-Then again, assuming set two goes that low as well (from its present 46 pounds) that’s only a savings of about twenty bucks weighed against its potentially going OOP...

Is the Jim Ellis book 'Derek Jarman's Angelic Conversations'? If so, does anyone know how good it is?

With regard to Volume 2, I would highly recommend getting it rather than risking it going out of print. It's an excellent set.
