BaenCD Server Notice

Quote:
As people have been discovering for the last few days, the contents of this archive site has recently changed.

For ten years now, Baen has seen fit to provide free teaser/sampler CDs with many of its first edition hardbacks. They have been - and still should be - applauded for making much of their material available as no-cost samplers. Anecdotal evidence suggests that many, many first-time readers have been swayed into buying Baen books due to having read something from one of the free CDs.

Baen is now on the verge of launching a new ebook distribution deal with an 'unnamed third-party'.

This third-party regularly crawls the web looking for ebooks it markets and, if found, matches their price to the new-found lower price.
You can see where this is going...

IMO it's hopeful news that the third party deal has been making progress. Baen have been trying to negotiate it for a long time now. Without naming names, there's a small number of big combined e-reader/e-book sellers. Buyers assume books "should" be on the big sites... and in the store that shows up in their e-reader. Baen surely can't afford to ignore the biggest of them.

So long, and thanks for all the books.
