Re: eBook prices getting stupid

EDIT: I was just looking at Trek e-books, and they actually have the first two Cold Equations books for only $5.99 and the third for $7.59. It seems weird to me that they would be marking the newest books down like that, while they mark the older books way up. I would think it would be the other way around.
The older books are more expensive in their current print incarnation (as print-on-demand tomes) than new releases (as offset-print mass-market paperbacks). The ebook price follows the lead of the print price.
