Best bet is ordering online or hitting up second-hand bookstores - virtually ALL OF MINE are from second-hand stores, and I'm fortunate that every year there is a 2nd-hand-book market type thing in the middle of town, plus I live like 15 minutes walk away from the Bazaar, which has an entire backroom dedicated to second-hand books.
Now, some of these have actually recieved modern reprints (starting with The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, which was the first), but I suggest you STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM THEM (barring that one) because all of them use a copypasta of the original rules with whatever "Special" versions (i.e. Skill System) tagged onto them.
This is an issue with some books like #25 Sword of the Samurai (reprint pictured - note that it lacks the green section across the top), because changing what you rolled for Stamina and Skill (the two stats) and the number of starting provisions was the primary way of modifying the difficulty of the book.
This is not retained in the reprints (as those sections are copypasta'd from the first book instead of their actual book), resulting in some reprint books being too hard or too easy.
