I ordered my copy of JSP Revelations way back in June, on pre-order from Amazon for about $67 (price “guaranteed”). Someone on JI reported receipt of a copy, so I checked, and the price had risen and the official story was that the book had not been received from the publisher. Now of course it is out of stock, and they write that I can cancel the order if I would like to.
My question is: did anyone get delivery of a copy from Amazon, and if so, at what price and was it preordered? I’m curious whether they selectively fill orders based on the price for which they agreed to sell rather than on time of ordering.
And, yes, I feel like somebody with a wine cooler in a brown paper bag who bumps into the Bishop at the store by admitting that I used Amazon for this purchase. I know I should be supporting independent booksellers, and that is my intention, but I’m curious about whether Amazon is misbehaving.
