* 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....

* ''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 You could always learn German, though and see if you have any luck finding old issues or reprints of those old outdated adventures.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 [[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.)

* The sequels to the children's classic ''Literature/AllOfAKindFamily'' have been out-of-print for a while. They were released on Kindle, but that doesn't satisfy many of the more [[LuddWasRight old-fashioned]] fans. They are murmuring about a re-release though.

* Legendary Hollywood director Richard Brooks (''Elmer Gantry'', etc.) tried his hand at literature before becoming a director - his first novel, ''The Brick Foxhole'', was an existentialist portrait of WWII soldiers stuck on base feeling estranged from their purpose, culminating in the murder of a gay man in the town their base is located and the murder's aftermath. An important early story revolving around hate crimes, the book was adapted into the noir film ''Crossfire'', albeit the murder victim changed from being gay to being Jewish and the perspective switched from the soldiers to police officers investigating the crime. The hate crime angle was retained, however, and the film was highly acclaimed for that aspect of the story. The book has been out of print for at least 70 years and the hardcover copies are quite expensive.
