I have the French versions of the double story, but have just had the English double volume sent from the Tintin shop (online). I am rather looking forward to it arriving, as although I do read a bit of French it is still more relaxing to read in English for me.
The Tintin Shop are selling the English versions for 15 UK Pounds at the moment which is pretty good for an out of print Herge book!

For some strange reason, The Secret Ray is available in the States right now through Amazon.

There's no graphic accompanying the listing, but it really is the 1994 English edition. At least, the one I just received from them is. For years I've been doing occasional searches here and there for this elusive little creature, and was certain this would turn out to either be a permanent-backorder, or a French edition, or heaven-knows-what. But, well, here it is in front of me.

Anyway, I can't be the only one hunting this particular game. Hope this is helpful to someone.

That's interesting, I see from the Amazon link that the publisher is given as Moulinsart. I'm pretty sure the publisher was Sundancer in the original 1994 edition, not Moulinsart, so is this a reprint? Or maybe old stock...?

It is in fact the 1994 Sundancer edition.

'Manitoba' cover on one side, 'Karamako' cover on the other, pink and white checkerboard liner on the inside and a couple pages of notes and pictures before the story starts.
