The Oz/Publisher rip-off continues - Hugh Howey's latest
Was just checking out the latest Hugh Howey book 'Sand'. Self-published in the US - $5.99. Random House publishes it in Australia. At Australian Amazon - $16.89 (I presume AU$). Oz Google Play - $17.99.
Am I the only one who thinks this is outrageous!
Sorry Hugh - you did your overseas readers no favours by taking the Random House deal. I won't be buying this book even though I have all the Wool books and enjoyed them. I refuse to be ripped off.

Valhalla I think the bulk of our ebook and paper book prices stink.
Note however that Kobo currently has a 50% off voucher code (see the Kobo Discounts thread) and the India store is bound to be selling it at a bargain!!
There's more than one way to let them know of one's distaste at the pricing rip off!!
