Yes, Amazon has copies and more are listed via; what I
mean is that you're unlikely to run into it in even the most
comprehensive and sci-fi-oriented of used bookstores. I still prefer
buying used books from physical bookstores, both for the thrill of
discovery and to help keep used bookstores alive. But I'm happy to see
Sladek's books get into people's hands no matter what the source, short
of library theft.

Hope you enjoy reading Bugs, assuming you're the one who snagged that
7th copy.

I don't know that it was hard to find...Amazon sellers have 7 (well, now
copies of Bugs available.
