Sphere seems to have reprinted Volume 2 at least once at some unknown date, this printing with the ISBN ending in 9726-2. Based on the lack of a price increase for this reprint, yet the assigning of a new ISBN, 1980 is my best guess. If anybody knows anything more about this reprint, please feel free to contact me.
