Even then, that is only speculation on my part so I wouldn't hold your breath in baited anticipation. Your best option to find it would be online resellers like eBay or Overstock or check every used book store you can find.
If for nothing else, EA might conceivably bundle Wasteland into something and try to sell it in the months before Wasteland 2 is going to ship. It's be silly not to, unless they are concerned about image, and releasing an offering that did not sell well. My suggestion would be to have a game magazine that EA does business with request a release of Wasteland 1 in the issue that covers Wasteland 2; that issue would receive an additional spike in sales by people that would never buy the issue normally.
