Subterranean Press joins Baen's Webscriptions

The deal was announced a while ago but now you can actually buy some books. They even have a Baen-style six-book bundle and eARCs.

http://www.webscriptions.net/m-6-sub...ean-press.aspx

I hope this is just a beginning. I've been planning to reread some Orson Scott Card and would love to do that on my Reader.

This will be nice, since almost everything they publish is short run, limited, & high cost. I picked up Elizabeth Bear's 'New Amsterdam' for $5, which cost me a bundle in HC a year or two ago.

I didn't get any of the Subterranean titles, but this reminded me that I'd been meaning to pick up some Meisha Merlin titles as soon as I'd gotten a bit of spare cash, so I did that.

Yes, Liaden series is really great.
BTW, if you finished them all and suffer from Liaden withdrawal, check this out:

And here I bought the last P.C. Hodgell as a paper book when I heard that Meisha Merlin was no more. I was worried that it would be impossible to get the book in the future. I really hope that P.C. Hodgell can continue the series know that Meisha Merlin is not publishing her.

I wish they'd get TOR back. Anyone heard anything new on that?

They have a few Tor books available for purchase, perhaps most notably David Weber's recent Off Armageddon Reef

Here's some more info: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13057

I think if you check into "Readerware" you will find they have a cataloging system that can be run on a PDA or your computer. They also sell a version with a bar-code scanner. About $90 if I recall correctly.

I have no specific new information on Tor and webscriptions (since September).

However ...

Tor's previous venture into webscription was intended as an experiment. If they've got the go-ahead to do a full scale venture, then they need to have the production team in place to pump out up to 25 books a month, and they need an appropriate storefront. Tor are a big publisher; they're not, in my view, going to be content to piggy-back on Baen's web presence the way that SRM or Subterranean are. But doing this sort of thing properly is not simply a matter of buying a copy of Mobipocket Publisher and hitting the big red button -- they're going to have to put a lot of work into making everything run smoothly. So it's hardly surprising that it's taking them a while to get everything sorted out.

My guess is that when they're ready to roll, the first sign will be that Tor do a major relaunch on their web presence. Betcha that if and when it happens, you'll drill down a level and run into lots of webscription-powered goodness. Betcha they've also been studying the dynamics of web-based communities (such as Baen's Bar) and they'll be aiming to establish one of their own, only bigger and better than anything any publishing company has ever done before. But that kind of thing takes time to set up ...

I noticed that a few of Charles de Lint's books, including some published in paper by Tor, are available at Fictionwise (2), Mobipocket (3) and Amazon Kindle (6). I wonder if this indicates that Tor is experimenting with a couple of ebook publishing channels?
