Why are these used books on Amazon so cheap?

I want a copy of Ramsey Campbell's Lovecraftian anthology Cold Print
, and I looked at the used copies on Amazon
and saw that several are being sold at stupidly low prices before shipping- four cents, twenty cents, a dollar- and I'm wondering: why are these copies so cheap? Are they tattered? Are they crap? Is it just some arcane quirk of used book retail?
