… Africa a Review.

"We certainly live in strange times. When Armies of the 19th Century: Africa, Vol. 2 Central Africa by Chris (C.J.) Peers was first released in 2011, you could purchase the hardback for around $25. USD I was late to the party and when I purchased my copy in 2013, it cost $40. USD Just 7 short years after its publication, the hardback is $125 USD and the Kindle version sells for $30. USD What gives?

Books on RPGs, wargaming and military history are niche markets. They often have short print runs. After a few years, many of them become almost impossible to find. However, if you are a successful author, some of your books sell for hundreds of dollars. I've seen books by Christopher Duffy selling on-line for $300 USD and find the same book in a used book store for $12 USD (of course I snapped it up!). Anyway, Chris (C.J.) Peers is one of those authors. He's written several books and rule sets, many for Osprey and Foundry. Most of them are excellent, but as with all authors, he's written a few stinkers as well (Too Few to Fight Too Many to Die is simply horrid)…"

Lucky I got these when they first came out as well. The only Foundry volume I need now is Rivals of the Raj. I loved this series. I wish they would have continued with books on the rest of Africa and Asia.
