Getting hold of the Hugo nominees

Thanks to Abigail Nussbaum for supplying links for those nominees available online; I've combined that with the latest prices from The Book Depository to generate this list. (And yes, those are euro prices, because this list is largely for my convenience: currently €1 = US$1.35, so add about a third; €1 = £0.89, so take off ten per cent; other currencies here.)

Eleven of the seventeen short fiction nominees are already available for free online, but note how inexpensive the anthologies are; and how expensive and in several cases difficult to obtain the non-fiction books are. (I have whined about Beccon's customer-unfriendly policies before.)
