Amazon's reputation has somewhat gone downhill in recent times, especially in the eyes of smaller sellers and suppliers.

I've ordered my copy - as usual - at the Aviation Bookshop in Royal Tunbridge Wells. I don't need the A-monster.

And yes, a well-researched book can cost a few £ more. In Germany, we had a market strategy "Geiz ist geil” (“stinginess is cool") - so no one wanted to pay a reasonable price for a product. Everyone wanted to make a bargain.
We should remember that writing a book as we wish is a time-consuming and costly task. Conclusion: Our hobby can be expensive, but i t 's o u r h o b b y ;)! If it costs too much we should better collect bottle caps or beer mats.

Important Message from the Author/Publisher

Firstly I would like to thank all those who have already purchased a copy of my book ‘Natter. Manned Missile of the Third Reich’. I hope it has lived up to your expectations.
Due to the unexpected and overwhelming demand for the book the sole distributor Bookworld Wholesalers have advised that the first printing has almost sold out.
As readers who have seen the book will appreciate, this has been an expensive book to self-publish.
However I would seriously consider a further reprint if the number of further orders justified it.
So if you would like a copy please submit your order to Bookworld Wholesalers”.

If not digital, then what is your solution for everyone who didn't get in on the 250?

Amazon sells thousands of digital books every minute and it works for them and the readers. Amazon and the book's author get paid and the buyer immediately gets his book. There is never a scarcity of supply of digital books. There is no waiting for another print run that may never happen.

Since you dislike "scarcity", what is your better word for the absence of supply of a desired book?

In this case, the author self-published and printed what he thought he could sell. Sometimes dedicated researchers will only risk so much.
