* ''PerryRhodan'': Germany's own SpaceOpera novella series. Going strong since 1961 and still going today with over 2800 volumes. The American translation (spearheaded by the legendary Forrest J. Ackerman) published by Ace Books, only lasted 120 volumes from 1969 to 1979. Rumor has it that although Perry gained a cult following in the U.S., the publisher disliked pulp space opera, thus the cancellation. There was also a short lived series in 1990. Good luck finding those old editions in English. You could always learn German, though and see if you have any luck finding old issues or reprints of those old outdated adventures.

The OutdatedFuture, Male-centrism, and general ValuesDissonance of that older series won't endear it to newer, younger readers, which rules out reprints. There was also a short lived series in 1990. Good luck finding those old editions in English. Used editions have shown up online for a small fortune per book. They tend to be in various states of decay due to the extremely cheap paper on which they were printed. You could always learn German, though and see if you have any luck finding old issues or reprints of those old outdated adventures.

* Some of RosemaryWells's older books from the 70's and 80's (Especially the original copies of MaxAndRuby from the late 70's) are out of print. Some of her older books get reprints with new covers in later years with new art work. In recent years, such as "Noisy Nora" (Which is one of Rosemary's first books) would get a newer art style compared to it's previous look from the 70's and 80's.
* Earl Mac Rauch, screenwriter and co-creator of ''Film/TheAdventuresofBuckarooBanzaiAcrossthe8thDimension'', wrote a pair of outlandish experimental novels in the late 60's and early 70's, ''Dirty Pictures from the Prom'' and ''Arkansas Adios''. The former features weird metafictional trickery, such as crossed out pages and deleted chapters, as well as crude sexual humor, and both books never got past their first editions, becoming extremely difficult to find.

* Swans leader Michael Gira's short-story anthology ''The Consumer'' was published in the 1990s by [[HenryRollins 2.13.61]] and is now out of print. The book can fetch high prices and is considered to be one of the most disturbing books ever released.

* Leo Szilard was a physicist, a student and peer of Albert Einstein, and wrote Einstein's famous letter to President Roosevelt that led to the Manhattan Project. Szilard's complicated feelings about his role in the development of the atomic bomb and the Cold War led him to write a book of science fiction short stories, ''The Voice of Dolphins'', exploring those themes. It has long been out of print.

** Another VCA example is ''Gathering Clouds'', a 48-page prequel to the Hudson Series. It was only included with the DVD of the film adaptation of ''Rain'' and nowhere else, not even in eBook form. You ''could'' just get a copy of the DVD... But some newer copies don't contain ''Gathering Clouds''. The official VCA Facebook mentioned the possibility of it being reissued as a download, but that was in 2011 with no word since.

* Now that ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' is officially over, the only way to read any of the chapter books or guides is to buy them used. At least you can find all the comics online....

* The [[http://home.epix.net/~wallison/bafs.html Ballantine Adult Fantasy]] series, commissioned by Betty and Ian Ballantine and edited by Lin Carter, reprinted many classic fantasy novels and story collections with imaginative wrap-around cover art and brand-new introductions. Some of these titles are now widely available in other editions, such as ''LordOfTheRings'' and ''{{Gormenghast}}'', while others (anything by Hannes Bok, for instance) continue to languish out of print--unsurprisingly, given that the series had a low print run and did not sell well, so collecting the entire BAF library is a rare achievement. And if you ''do'' manage to acquire the complete Ballantine Adult Fantasy line, congratulations on your beautiful bookshelf. (For decades, the line's two [[{{Creator/HPLovecraft}} H. P. Lovecraft]] anthologies, ''The Doom That Came to Sarnath'' and ''The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath'', ''were'' still in print albeit with different cover art, but they, too, recently entered this trope.)
