I think you're correct. The smallest gift card is £10. That's the hold up. I might as well wait until I have more to purchase. Amazon doesn't accept Paypal.

You can also set up the other way around, if you have access to a UK payment method (not as easy to come by as a US one, alas).

That's what I discovered. Is there no "ukunlocked" type of service? Amazon blocked me unless cookies were enabled also.

Anyway, Kobo was ridiculously easy to navigate for UK access and purchase. I'll probably just use them.

Kobo doesn't have Space Search but Quest of the Three Worlds is 7.99. Which is basically the monopoly money exchange rate price above, so same there it seems.

Can you not purchase Quest of the Three Worlds from Kobo UK? It's £2.99 there or about US$4.80.

Maybe with some messing around, but I'm not willing to waste any time to avoid French usury. Others deserve the money more.

Here's an interesting one :-

The Forge in the Forest and The Anvil of Ice by Michael Scott Rohan

http://www.amazon.com/The-Forge-Fore...+in+the+forest

These are 3.16 - with preorder sequel 12.79. That is cheapest price have seen from them.

Definitely currently using local address too.

So Space Search and Quest of the Three Worlds are still the same price, so leaning towards mistaken price lowering.

It seems that the logged in as UK price for Dune is 4.89 and logged in as Australia is 5.32 - both in US dollars.

Yep. Choice reduced rather when some are 3 times the price.

Excellent - just bought the whole of Harry Harrison's "Stainless Steel Rat" series - the first 6 in the "Stainless Steel Rat Collection" omnibus, and the other 5 separately at £2.99.

Many of them are still higher priced in Oz. I was interested in Harry Harrison's Bill The Galactic Hero series but most are not at the lower price.

There are 11 of them? I have absolutely no idea which ones I've read, but I'm pretty sure it was only 5 or 6.

(I think many of the SSR books were 2.99 even before the sale. But probably not all of them.)

There are 12, in fact . The last one in the series is being released (by Gateway) on 21st Dec, so I've pre-ordered it.
