AbeBooks' price for She is The Darkness - $175.00
Amazon's price - $58.00

Both of those listings are on both sites, and they are from third party sellers.  If you had looked last week you would have seen that AbeBooks had about half dozen copies of She is the Darkness going for under $50 (some as low as $!0) which have all sold now.  It's just like a used book store, you have to keep checking for the book you want at the price you want.   If you're patient it will pay off.

But yeah, in this one case, today, Amazon has more listings - and they are all too fuggin' expensive.  Check AbeBooks in a few days and you'll see what i mean.

BTW

The ISBN's listed above are for the mass market paperback editions.  If you want hardback editions you will need to do a little more digging.  I don't have the first edition ISBN's yet but I'll post them when I do.

I dunno Matty.  I just tried getting naked and reading to my wife by candle light while she was cleaning up the kitchen.  She told me to put on some clothes, turn the damn lights back on and  GTF out of the kitchen.

Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

From my experience in the Lowlands, it's not THAT strange. And what's with your lady not reading books, my friends book collections were about 80% English. Which bit of the Netherlands are you  guys from?
