It's kind of nice to know I can still be shocked

Quixotic Night Press seems to require at least 2,500 pre-orders before they will epublish your book. To get a lower cover price of $2.99 you need 100,000 Pre-Orders.

"In order to officially go to print, a book needs to receive 2500 pre-orders. If the book does not receive 2500 pre-orders, the book will not go to (electronic) print, all pre-orders taken to that point are cancelled and all rights revert to the author."

What the big hairy fuck?!  If you can't get thousands of people to pre-order the book they would rather throw it in the bin? Backdoor vanity publishing?
