Why is Pattern Recognition around 2.5x the price of other WG Books?

Hey.

How come Pattern Recognition is retailing in AU
for (softcover) AU$45 (~US$35) or (hardcover) AU$45.

remeber it being more than $30...
is this some sort of new-release
tax that hurts the hard-core fans first ?

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.
