Just FYI The kindle version of The Stand has been removed

Glad I grabbed it before it dissapeared.

I downloaded the sample just to make sure it wasn't an AZW1 book with bad formatting, but when I went to actually buy it, I got a message that there was a technical problem...

Looks like the same version I purchased in Mobi format from Fictionwise back in July (a bunch of King's stuff came out back then with 100% micropay rebates).

I notice it is still there -- but at an obscene price (much higher than I paid).

$50 for it is obscene. I don't think it'll sell well at all.

Its been 50 dollars at other sites for a long time now. I never got why they were trying to charge so much.

Glad I bought it when I did, then! Just checked my email archive, and I got it for $15.26 (with a $15.26 micropay rebate) back on 7/5.

silly people, Amazon has simply run out of Kindle editions of this book. More will arrive soon.

I think it was going for $8.99 when it first came out...

The other day when I posted the question about the "Uncut" version it was under $10 as far as I recall or maybe just over that and I seem to remember the original version was either $7.99 or $8.99. I thought the $50 one was a printed first edition. of some sort. I doubt it was for the original 1st ed but a different 1st ed.
