Bummer.  Depends partly on how recently another one sold, I think
-- if the person who was willing to bid a huge amount did so and
won, he won't be bidding on your copy.  And if another such person
hasn't come along yet...

I lost an auction for a copy of Hype (the book).  Shortly later
another copy came up, and I won that (yippee!) for a *lot* less
than I'd bid the first time.  But I bet that if it had been
months instead of weeks between the two auctions, the second one
would have gone for more than it did.

The acronym for "the powers that be" differs by only one letter
from that for "the pointy-haired boss".
