... or are Amazon taking the urine?
Tiamat's Wrath: Book 8 of the Expanse[^] is due out on Thursday.

And the Kindle version is 3 quid more than the paperback.
OK, electronic books have VAT on them - 20% - but even without that we are looking at £9.16 vs £7.99. And the paperback includes packaging, next day delivery - the electronic version has no print costs, no material costs, no delivery costs ... so why is it more expensive than the "physical" version?
