As far as I know Alex has periods when she can get limited print runs. I have a copy sitting in front of me which I'm not using as I'm not really playing at the moment. I don't want to sell it, but if you want to borrow it for a period, and don't mind paying the postage you could have it on extended loan. It's in as new condition, but I'm actually not fussy if it gets a bit bent up with use.
Perhaps you'd just remember that it is mine when you're done with it.

Hi Alan,
I don’t want to get in the way of the very generous offer above, but I f you’d like to buy your own copy I have a virtually new one I’d be happy to sell as it’s currently gathering dust on the shelf. Please PM me if this helps....
Cheers,
Guy

Here's a piece I wrote about DL, with contact information for Alexandra Browne. You can order directly from her.

And here's an interview with her, FYI

I bought a copy at Hobgoblin in Birmingham last summer.  There were other copies there, all apparently new.

I've contacted Alex to alert her about this thread.
She is still a member of this forum: 'Valkyrie'.

Her last post to date was this one, where she indicated all the printed copies of her book were now sold:
