Go, Read: Lengthy Collecting Article

As much as I find back-issues collecting a bit frustrating on a certain level in that I believe that certain classes of books are artificially propped up and could be put to better use as a used-books type of market allowing easier access to a certain kind of fan, I remain somewhat fascinated by the high-end collectibles market, that weird mix of auction houses, celebrity buyers and slightly disreputable pulp. This is a long article on the subject. There are a lot of interesting figures bandied about in there, too.
