That is just absolutely disgusting! Do they expect people to get into Dune by offering only the worst book in the series? Or did they figure the book was so bad, no one would want to pirate it? And are they serious with that hardcover-like price — or simply insane?

Even worse, I came across a listing for a book called The Secrets of Frank Herbert’s Dune — which is listed as No Longer On Sale. What does that mean? What if I still want it (I do!). Do I go looking for a pirate copy because some eejit company decided it was too much bother to take someone’s money for it?
