But a lot are left out. I would dearly like to buy the Majistrum serie, but it is not available as ebook.
Let's hope they publish the latest Inspector Chang. The serie is delightful. The first two I read quickly, they are very good. The other two are there waiting...

Roughly half of their catalog is in ebooks, I would say. A pity.

I'm not sure what to make of this. I'm looking at this book (Black Magic Sanction), which Amazon has priced at $12.99, and says "This price was set by the publisher"

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

And when I go to the Happercollins website, it says the list price is $11.99 and the final price is $9.59 for a 20% savings.

So how does the Agency model pricing work? I thought it was the minimum a book/ebbok could be sold for?

The agency model means that the publisher chooses the exact amount that a retailer can sell a book for. But there's no guarantee that the publisher will set the same price at all retailers (barring "most favored nations" clauses like Amazon/Apple seem to have negotiated), or that the publisher won't sell books for cheaper than it's having retailers sell the title for (except perhaps for those same "most favored nations" clauses, but even those might not necessarily apply).

Half is a lot more than most, of course!

I've actually mentioned some I would like to see to them and they have appeared, so can't hurt to do if there is something you want.

But, currently Harpercollins is not allowing you to purchase directly from them. So whatever other online shop has the lowest price is it.
