Trotter,

That's....... not acceptable. By any definition I can think of.

I certainly hope so, and assuming they are all in circulation I think they will come down in price eventually. Buyers have to be patient for that to happen though!

Without contributing to the "what is is worth" side of the conversation for the deluxe "Tales from the Perlious Realm", my point is that I have been watching closely online for these, and this recent ebay copy is the one of the only copies that has come up for sale anywhere (ABEBooks, Amazon third party sellers, eBay, Biblio, Alibris, etc.) that I have noted for at least six months that isn't ridiculous (there's one from a China seller on Biblio.com right now for over $600, I am not even sure that isn't a phishing scam instead of a real copy). These are quite scarce on the open marketplace, currently.

Onónion,

I hate to say this, but try to find that "Tales From the Perilous Realm" Deluxe edition for less. You will have your work cut out for you. It must have had a very small print run.

Here's the link again for the preview box:

eBay Item #181398593156

I get the feeling that consistency is not a high priority for any publisher, unless the new book is part of a multi-volume set.

I also think that the designer here is not the same person as on the others (just a hunch) and they of course want to show some individuality and contribution to the design.

Plus now when they come out with a matching style, people like us will be "forced" to collect that as well because they look so much nicer together on the shelf!
