I got back into reading King recently after years of not reading him, so I never bought a copy of The Colorado Kid. When I started to collect his works again so that I could read or re-read everything, I figured I'd find this one in a book store the same way I see Joyland everywhere (and have now bought a copy). But not a single book store in my immediate area carries it. Not even the second hand ones. The second hand ones have marked it as "rare" and I can't even order it online through my local chain.
Amazon wants, minimally, $35 for it, a thin book that retails for eight bucks. What on earth is going on with that?
