Postage costs money; I believe even 4th class (media rate)
will run you over a dollar.  And then it'll take literally
*months* to reach the first person on the list.  By the
time it gets to the second person, the mass market edition
should be out.  I'd do option one.  (In fact, I personally
have done that for a couple of Brust books.)  You should
check beforehand to see if they already have a copy and, if
possible, try to hand it directly to the librarian in charge
of SF.
