These are easy to find in the USA. Black Storm Comin' and Firehorse are still in print and Ravenspeak is due to be published shortly and can be pre-ordered. In the UK, there are just a few second-hand copies around. Black Storm Comin' seems to be the only one which can be ordered brand new from Amazon for UK customers, although Firehorse can be pre-ordered. Most of the others may have to be bought from the USA, although they are usually fairly cheap to buy.
