I can't tell who wrote what above, but here's my response to the guy 
looking for stuff:

I've got a copy of Chitin: I and Ice War.  They're in good shape, though 
the counters are cut.  However, I'm not really interested in parting with 
them.  No, I don't say that to try to jack up the "trading" price.  It 
does mean I would like a lot for them (Chitin more than Ice War) -- more 
than they're probably worth, and probably more than what you could find 
them for elsewhere.

But, like you, I'm a collector, and I'd hate to see a collection go 
unfulfilled because I'm greedy, which is why I'm responding.  Please try 
as hard as you can to find those two titles elsewhere.  However, if you 
get to a point where you just can't seem to track them down, let me know 
(assuming you're even interested in copies that have cut counters).  
Seriously, I expect to ask for way too much in return, so I'm also going 
to hope you find them for less elsewhere.

Yeah, I know this was a strange email, but as I said, I don't want to 
part with my extra copies, yet I'd hate for that to keep you from filling 
out the collection.
