What's worse is when (not in this case that I am aware of) the seller then relists the item at a higher price. I have had that happen to me as a buyer more than once - when it sells immediately after listing and they realize they underpriced the item.

And... just had the order cancelled. They gave the reason as "we had a leak in our storage unit and the book was severely water damaged." I am wondering if it is the same book as on eBay, which has harsher cancellation policies, and Morgan and I bought the same copy.

It is not the original paper version, but you can purchase a PDF from the Trinity Forum still:

It costs $3.00
