Are Tor-Macmillan still not on amazon?

just wondering as read John Scalzi blog about Amazon and can see that he isn't showing as having any ebooks or Pbooks for sale directly from Amazon?

I though this issue was over now?

Sony have them all at a decent price - http://ebookstore.sony.com/search?ke...scalzi&x=0&y=0

but Amazon US nothing? - http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...scalzi&x=0&y=0

Oh and whilst looking I noticed Crichtons new book was expensive? why is this not $9.99?
EDIT it is $9.99 at sony? - http://ebookstore.sony.com/ebook/mic...00000000183402

Are sony now the cheaper ebook store?

Paperback/hardcovers are there. the ebooks are limited, probably as a result of macmillian's demands.

and pirates is 9.99 at amazon as well.

I can't buy from your link due to location, if I go search for it myself, its 9.99.

though you are right, no paperbacks show, hardcovers do though.

You said you are in the UK, which is probably showing you different results due to different publishers.


I blame you if amazon starts trying to sell me Scalzi if I wanted to read Dick or Heinlein, I would read them, not some guy who rewrote the cliff notes.

I just tried it and it says not available for the US
Maybe I should get Pirates Latitude from the Pirate Bay

Just tried something different and it works now... and it still comes up as $9.99

Me too, but the weird thing is, if you click on the "Kindle Edition" under the formats list it pops up as "Available for download now", and if you click on it you are taken to a different page (one with a different book cover) where you can download it in the US. That link must just be to the UK version or something.

Edit: milaru beat me to it

I thought they only added a dollar on for non US purchases? I was considering Kindle at one point as at an extra dollar it was still cheap, but this is over $3 increase to me.

Obviously it is a UK US thing but as i said thought that was an extra buck!?

I don't know; it doesn't make any sense. It's supposed to be an additional $2 actually.

But if you had to buy them from a UK site like Waterstone's or WHSmith it would cost 11.30 pounds, which is about $18 US.

HarperCollins is owned by NewsCorp, and the tent is big enough to group all evil together?

Just over $14 from BoB whoi will sell that one to me in the UK(I checked)

it was more the weird pricong of the amazon one when i thought it should be $9.99 plua a dollar cos im in uk.

other weirdness is I,Alex cross by patterson is $14.99 and witch and Wizards is $11.28 yet they are both $9.99 on US store.

The surcharge varies by country. Plus you usually get your local VAT tacked onto the price as well.

I get that but thought it was a set amt eg $2 and VAT

but no two $9.99 in the US ebooks are priced differently in the UK, I,Alex cross by patterson is $14.99 and witch and Wizards is $11.28 How does that work? Witch and wizards doesnt even have the $2 added.

That's really bizarre. Checking from Poland, they both come up at $13.79...
