If Anyone’s Talking to the OUP Guy

Ask him why Oxford University Press titles are so often set to maximum gouge?

I understand they mostly have a business via schools/libraries, i.e. indirect transfer from taxpayers, and are there capable of getting $70-80 for a title.  But geeze, they have one book going for $45 hardcover that would do much better as a $15 trade paperback. If not a $6.99 version.  But the pricing is ridiculous.

Don’t believe there’s interest in Wuxia? Just hit the movies next weekend.
