Anne Rice - The Vampire Chronicles Collection (3 books) $15.99 (US) [Horror] (RH)

Published by Random House, so the same price everywhere. Going for $7.99 separately.

Product Description
The hypnotic, deeply seductive novels of Anne Rice have captivated millions of fans around the world. It all began a quarter of a century ago with Interview with the Vampire. Now, in one chilling volume, here are the first three classic novels of The Vampire Chronicles.

INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE
Witness the confessions of a vampire. A novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force, it is a story of danger and flight, love and loss, suspense and resolution, and the extraordinary power of the senses.

THE VAMPIRE LESTAT
Once an aristocrat from pre-revolutionary France, now a rock star in the decadent 1980s, Lestat rushes through the centuries seeking to fathom the mystery of his existence. His is a mesmerizing story–passionate and thrilling.

QUEEN OF THE DAMNED
Akasha, the queen of the damned, has risen from a six-thousand-year sleep to let loose the powers of the night. She has a marvelously devious plan to “save” mankind–in this vivid novel of the erotic, electrifying world of the undead.

It seems rather expensive for an omnibus of three books that are over twenty years old.

The paperbacks are listed at $7.99 each. The cost of each of those eBooks is $5.33 each. Is that too expensive? Not really.

The paperback of this collection was first published in 2002. It's still available... for $13.60.

$15.99 for the ebook is expensive. I would expect $10 or less.

I was comparing to the individual books since we seem to have a lot of eBook omnibuses that do not exist in pBook. Given that the price for the pBook edition is a bit cheaper, the price is too high for the eBook.
