And my latest discovery...

In the UK, Pratchett is published by Corgi, part of the Random House empire.

In the US, he is published by Harper Collins.

All US stores appear to restrict his titles to US customers, and the only UK store selling his books this evening is the Books On Board UK site. And here is the conspiracy part...they are selling the Corgi versions of the ones that used to be available on Waterstones.com at £9ish, and Harper Collins versions of the ones which were only available in the US at under £5!

I smell a rat - an expensive one
