When I bought "The Difference Engine" I don't
remeber it being more than $30...

In Japan, Pattern Recognition came out briefly in hard then went straight to paper. In paperback it's the cheapest of his books available. Most are around 1,500 ~ 2,000 yen, but this one is 980. Maybe popularity is a factor? Because there doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason.
