Inspired by all the talk about Highlander here recently, I decided to watch the film again. It didn't disappoint.

Then, some strange madness seized me. I had a burning desire to read the tie-in novel. So I decided to seek one out and buy it. Here's what I found:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Highlander-by-Douglas-Garry-Paperback-Book-The-Cheap-Fast-Free-Post/302549559797?epid=86917742&hash=item46715be9f5:g:LmAAAOSwNmVaWSFP

An eye-popping £67 !!!!!

Or, around $94 !!!!!

And that seems to be a pretty average price for every copy on every website I could think of searching.

Is it really that rare?

I'm stunned!

Amazon has some a bit cheaper:

While we're at it:

I think the high prices you found were for the hardcover edition which probably had a smaller print run? The ones I found were all mass market paperbacks. But maybe there's some other reason it commands such a price?
