I am working on getting that book available in the haskell bookstore. I
searched quite a while before I found a used printed copy at a
reasonable price and my search was part of my motivation for creating
the bookstore. 

It is a bit trickier than the other books on the site because I only
have a scanned in copy of the print version to work with, rather than
LaTeX source. but I should have time this week to get it online.
