Anyone have any idea why all of his books are still in print, but it's easier to hit the lotto than find 'The Mailman' or 'University'. I've contacted his publisher by phone and all they'll say is "Those titles are out of print."

Why would these 2 out of the 20 books he's written have gone 'out of print'? It can't be lack of demand because if their was lack of demand for his books, they'd ALL be out of print.

Anyone know? Anyone? Beuller?

You can get both of these at Borders MarketPlace. I have Houses, Night School and Guests coming from there. It's a great place to get out of print books and sometimes you can get them for as little as $2.09.

Yeah, I know where I can get them, it just doesn't make sense to allow two of his many books to go out of print like that. I guess the publisher doesn't want to make any money from his sizeable fanbase. Plus, the more out of date the books are, the harder it is to find a copy that hasn't been creased to death. I'm picky about the condition of books.

I just didn't understand it is all.
