The great trouble with magicians is the fact that they believe when they have bought a certain trick or piece of apparatus, and know the method or procedure, that they are full-fledged mystifiers. -- Harry Houdini

Well you should be glad as the material is meant to be read and used, books that go out of print do not do anyone any good except for maybe greedy collectors who want to charge high prices for books that are no longer available or selfishly keep them to themselves. Although I am a collector I am first and foremost a performer. So I am always glad to see books back in print as they were made to be read and used so that the author and their material lives on. I always found it odd also that the OOP/high price thing only seems to happen with magic books mostly, in every other hobby or professional books are dirt cheap even if they are OOP. But it is never a good thing when such great information and work is no longer available, except for those as I said who want to keep them selfishly to themselves. New magicians should have access to the material in order for the art to continue on. Luckily there is so much still available out there though. But I think everything ever written should still be available as that is why it was written, to be read and used.
