Dropped in to the Black Library website to check what's new and came across a limited edition novella for £30.
A thirty quid short story???
Well these limited editions must be profitable or BL wouldn't offer them. "Limited' no doubt accurately describes the sales figures but on the other hand the profit margin must be staggering.
I guess this reflects the "pile 'em low, sell 'em dear" policy of GW in general.
It's quite interesting how GW seems to be turning its business model into a low volume 'luxury' manufacturer as opposed to the high volume toy manufacturer it aspired to be in the 90s. The target audience appears to be 'rich kids' - of various ages :)
