I can understand being upset that it's going to be 4 months, on the other hand, it's not like the books have been coming out in a timely manner anyway.
Most of the Tor titles that I'm interested in, come out as an ebook as the same time as a hardback book, so I'm sure that it's Jordan's widow. No reason she couldn't release it as an ebook at the same price as the hardback though.
It's not fair--but the reader has zero other recourse. A lot of them have tried writing the publisher and so on--they get no answer or a form letter. Has zero effect. I'm not sure this will work either, but it has to be more annoying for the publisher (and possibly the widow) than quieter means.
