You can routinely find this at public libraries, as it is an "award-winning" "classic". The story is nicely done, and cleverly avoids being dated (1963 publication) as to how they deal with the science issues. I believe I've read it twice over the years, and found it to be a very nice SF story that I believe Rod Serling (aka Twilight Zone) would have also appreciated, along the lines of his more thoughtful, slowly told stories. The author very nicely addresses the implications of the technology of the Way Station, and develops the characters nicely. I"m just a little surprised by the price given how many decades old the story is (the author died several years ago). Here's a free audio link. His novel "The Goblin Reservation" along with Poul Anderson's "Operation Chaos" might be considered the progenitors to the modern urban fantasy genre.
