It looks like that's the result of a pretty common scam. Amazon provides e-book and print-on-demand services, which allows people to do things like submit Wikipedia articles as "books", charging outrageous pricing. Of course, the next step is to automate the process and just systematically scrape new Wikipedia articles and feed them to Amazon's publish-on-demand system.

Yes, I imagined it'd be something like that. There are loads of books by the same "author". I suppose if just one person buys one, it's worth it.
