Yeah, really quite interesting. I tried to find a news item that might explain the situation, but have come up empty so far. It makes me wonder if it's not related in some way to the Spring release of the 4th book, James Potter and the Morrigan Web? Also it seems a bit odd that the 3rd book is not yet for sale on Amazon?
