Sadly, ive noticed this happening a lot with books such as these. If you dont know and are not well informed, because lets face it, some of these
authors books are hidden away on an obscure website at times, you'll go straight to Amazon and buy them for inflated prices. Ive seen this a lot.
Amazon/eBay are the first places that most folks visit online when book searching/buying etc.
David Hastings for example (off topic for this sub-forum, so my apologies) has a book called UFOs and Nukes. It discusses encounters about UFOs around
Nuclear installations. Well, his book on Amazon is usually priced at 80+ dollars. His website, which I JUST DISCOVERED recently, sells the book for I
believe 21 dollars. The book was published in 2008 I believe.
Sellers are trying to take advantage of folks who are not good at searching or dont know any better.
So the first thing that I do when I find a book on Amazon/eBay that I am wanting to buy that is over priced, is to do some extensive searching and see
if they are sold directly from the publisher/author on some website.
