I just preordered a signed limited edition hardcover copy of Caitlín R. Kiernan's Tales of Pain and Wonder. And paid a whopping 52 USD for it, postage included, which translates to roughly 35 euros. But it's not as expensive as it sounds, since the out-of-print softcover copies sell for 40 euros and up (the most expensive copy I found had a price tag of 92,72 euros, which I found a bit extravagant for a used paperback) these days. I could have gotten it for something like 30 euros with postage from Amazon.co.uk, but somehow I felt more comfortable with ordering directly from the publisher, plus there's a free chapbook with extra-special bonus material included with all the copies purchased from Subterranean Press (don't you just love the name?), which is not available anywhere else. The fangirl in me is perfectly happy to pay an extra 5 euros for something extra-special and geeky ^_^.
