Where can I buy original edition and out-of-print roleplaying books and accessories?

Can anyone help me? I'm looking for some old GURPS games (and quite often I want to buy this or that out-of-print game), so I need some RPG shops that sell online. Best are shops in Europe; others are a little worse. I already know that eBay can help me 75% of the time. (I hope this isn't off-topic.)

@sevenSidedDie Which one is vote to merge? –  Brian Ballsun-Stanton May 24 '11 at 9:39
    
@Brian There isn't one. I think that's just what happens when the comments-consensus is merge and the Q gets closed. A mod has to make it happen. –  SevenSidedDie May 24 '11 at 16:56
    
@xanatos Are the answers to the question I linked ("Where can I buy…") useful for answering your question, or is there something specific you're asking which that question doesn't cover? –  SevenSidedDie May 24 '11 at 16:58
    
@SevenSidedDie It's ok if you want to merge. The main difference is that I'm looking mainly for European shops, and in the other question the answers where mainly for USA shops. –  xanatos May 24 '11 at 19:31
    
@xanatos The answers over there should be including all sources, not just US ones. I'm not personally in a hurry to see this merged, but probably that's what will happen eventually just so we have a comprehensive list in one place. :) –  SevenSidedDie May 25 '11 at 16:40

If you are looking for content, rather than specifically for dead tree, most of the OOP GURPS books are available in PDF from e23.
http://e23.sjgames.com/
The ones that aren't tend to be the licensed ones (Horseclans, Commonwealth, etc).

Noble Knight Games also tends to have lots of OOP stuff.

Prices tend to run a bit higher than ebay.

Check American Book Exchange, as well:
http://www.abebooks.com/
It's a clearinghouse for used book dealers to share their catalogs for comparison shopping. It will connect you with literally hundreds of bookstores

abebooks is very useful. It would be beautiful if it was present in other nations. –  xanatos May 25 '11 at 4:41

+1 for e23! It's absolutely the best resource for old GURPS and other SJG content. –  gomad May 25 '11 at 14:45

For general "Random RPG" stuff, try Crazy Egor. While he charges a premium and is in the states, he has a remarkably stupid inventory.

I totally recommend http://www.fanen.com if you understand German. Excellent GURPS section (as well as many other treasure troves): http://www.fanen.com/rollenspiele/s--1_131_-1_-1/katalog/1909816707/gurps-4th-edition.html (and although the title says 4th edition it's much more).

Amazon.com I've found to be quite good. Unfortunately if you're outside the US you don't get their super saver shipping, but usually you're ordering from a storefront anyway. I find the prices on the .com site to be much more reasonable than their regional sites (.ca is the other place I look, and this isn't just because of the exchange rate, as lately it's been close to 1:1).
