    Dark Regions Press has four copies availability if anyone is interested. Do not expect them to last long:

    Yes, DRP appears to jack up the price when they can get it.

    Yeah, I didn't think they'd sell any at that price...so imagine my surprise when I check this morning and all four copies are sold out. Glad I got mine at cover price. I don't really have a problem with them jacking up the price, though admittedly I wouldn't pay 3x the cover price...it's not as though they're a bookseller per se (e.g. Camelot Books, et al), so I tend to relax my expectations of such things when they're not.

    They started with five available. I have no issue with a retailer marking the item. I can choose to buy or not, they sold there copies in 24 hours so clearly the price was appropriate. Camelot has marked things up as well but I have not seen it to that extreme.

    I think the price was dictated by the going rate on eBay. $300-$350 for Limited. $800 and up for Lettered. That's what I've been seeing. I'm kicking myself for not buying a copy to sell.

    They sold all five... I don't know if I would have gone that high for the limited considering that the lettered was offered at $400 from Subterranean. The question is how well will these editions retain their value. There's heat right now as it has just been published but I'm curious where prices will settle down at. I can't wait to get my copy. Camelot just shipped it last week!

    IT IS A GORGEOUS BOOK! But yeah, I wonder where the price will level off at. I think what we're seeing is the FOMO price. Who knows how long people will hunt down copies. I know mine will stay right where it's at until I'm no longer around.

    At least you googled it. I have no clue what it means either and am too lazy to Google it.

    No, I should be ashamed that I used a dumbass abbreviation like I'm 12. I wish I were 12. Anyway, FOMO is the Fear Of Missing Out, for those who have better things to do than waste Google's time.

    I'm with you: I won't be selling this book. One of my all-time favorites!
