Once a Runner by John L. Parker Jr

I read a review about a book by a runner from the 70's, John L. Parker, Jr. called Once a Runner. It sounded great, so I jumped on Amazon.com to see if I could buy a copy. The cheapest copy is over $900! So I went to ebay and found it listed in the auction items for the low, low cost of between $130-$330...for a paperback! I'm so amazed that he hasn't re-printed this book. Supposedly he's written another one, a sequel, that will be released soon.
