Note that that price range is for the first-edition hardcover, from
Steeldragon Press.  It's a very nice package (we have I think three of
them in the house here at the moment).  It's illustrated by Kathy
Marschall (whose name bears some resemblance to the name of a
fictional artist mentioned in the Dragaera books...), and they're all
signed.  (One interesting aspect of Steven's signature is that it's so
illegible to begin with that the difference from the start to the end
of the print run isn't as great as one might expect.)  I'll bet the
Ace paperback is much cheaper.

And of course it's currently in print from, I think, Orb (Tor's
keep-stuff-in-print line), so you don't need to pay the $500 unless
you're a collector.
