Hugely divergent price on this Sci-Fi ebook

Because of a recent book assemblage [upload] that I did on an old Sci-Fic space opera series of novelettes by Anthony Gilmore [editor Harry Bates] and posted here on MobileRead, I came across some interesting research on a book written by two writers. The name of the book is "Space Vulture," and is written in the style of a 1950s space opera that might have been published in "Planet Stories," if written during that time.

I was intrigued by the price point. Look at Amazon's price:

http://www.amazon.com/Space-Vulture-...3911787&sr=1-1

Now look at the Fictionwise price:

http://www.fictionwise.com/ebooks/b65829/?si=0

I think you'll have to admit that that is a huge disparity. Of course, this is not news for most of us. But for the beginners here - those who have recently acquired their first Reader - it's a good thing to keep in mind when searching for ebooks across the net.

Lesson: Check for prices points when interested in a specific piece of writing.

Exactly. That's again worth a full quote here with that link.

There are others, of course, but those mentioned should suffice for beginners or for the curious who are interested in doing price-comparison shopping.
