Kendall | 5 comments Ok, so why is Fool Moon over $800? Are there two different covers with the same ISBN? I saw a few HC Fool Moons for $23 with the same ISBN and picture, but thought that those might have a different cover? Let me know if you have any info.

I did a quick search, but could not find the price range that you are referring to. In order to get the best feedback from us, it would help if you could provide the exact ISBNs that you are searching by, and a link to the exorbitant priced item.

Well, by searching for that ISBN on DealOz that pricing does not seem to be a mistake:

My only guess is that it has something to do with extremely limited printing. Some might not know, but the Dresden Files were not originally released in Hardcover format. In fact, all of Jim Butcher's books were paperback only up until Furies of Calderon, which was his first Hardback.

I can understand that if the Dresden Files were re-released in hardcover format years after the paperbacks have been out, then the publishers would understand that the only individuals who might buy the hardcover would be collectors. It wouldn't surprise me if Fool Moon only had 300 copies or less printed worldwide in hardcover format.

Concerning the $24 versions: Firstly, make sure that the sellers did not mix up their posting for that hardcover version with an alternate version seen here:

Other than that, I have no other advice. If the $24 version is in fact the $1000 version seen elsewhere, then I would probably suggest buying it.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out!
