They should offer the entire catalog for a special price.

I agree with Ardeegee the prices seem high. Shouldn't these be public domain by now?

Random House has done the same with Nevil Shute. I think it's their Vintage line, and they are pricing these ebooks to correspond with the trade paperbacks.

And that price should be free of course, I suppose if they must they can place an ad in the front for other books.

Advertising makes you the product. I would rather pay. His books aren't public domain, but those prices seem a little high.

And these are not even critical editions, are they? I see no indication of that. Wow, these prices really suck.

At least they are offering the Snopes trilogy (one of his best works) for an almost decent price. $15 bucks for three great novels makes sense. But $10 for novels like Pylon...

For anyone who is interested in Faulkner but find him too intimidating, I would suggest starting with Light in August. It's a wonderful book, one of his very best, and is more accessible that other novels of his. Actually, I would avoid his most famous title, The Sound and the Fury, at first. Its first chapter can be as frustrating as a puzzle with missing pieces, so it's not a great invitation to read his other books. At least that was my case: I read it when I was a teenager and didn't give Faulkner a second chance until more than 10 years later.

Of course but I'd like to see the figures about how many people (in 2013) pass on a free copy that's high in the google search results and buy The Sound and the Fury for $9.99. When you search 'Animal Farm ebook' on Google you have to scroll down to the 10th result before you find one that you pay for.

Following your recommendation, I just preordered Light in August .

My first eBook (some 4 years ago) was a freebie from WOWIO, William Faulkner and Southern History by Joel Williamson, which I liked a lot.

If I like his writing as much, I don't mind paying 10 bucks for a book.

Thanks for the heads up.
