Interesting. I wonder if this means they'll finally be launching their ebook store or...

I don't know about the whole Prologue for $3 deal, but whatever. I'm sure some folks will buy it.


Interesting that they've commissioned new cover art for the ebooks.

No word on DRM?

You think? Isn't everyone lugging around a suitcase full of books on a daily basis?

If anyone is bored, it might be worthwhile reading some of the comments on his writing style on /.. I found them amusing, anyway.

You'd have to assume they will be smart enough to go with epub, but then again if they had been really smart then they would have started this a few months ago and released 2-3 a month so that by the time the new book came out the rest of the series had been available as an ebook.

Regardless of people's opinions on the quality of the series, its still a good thing every time you see another well known series or author become available as an ebook.

SPOILER ALERT ;-)

I am quoting entire comment from Slashdot.

Spoiler:
Loial kills Rand al'Thor. But only after Rand flips out and kills Elayne Avhienda and Min in a rather grisly way.

Fearing reprisals, the Ogier declare war on the White Tower and lose. The entire Ogier race goes extinct.

A pack of wolves mistake Perrin's continued brooding for an illness and give him a mercy killing.

Nynaeve breaks her neck in a freak braid-pulling incident.

Mat wakes up and finds Bobby Ewing in his shower and realizes it was all a dream.

IF this means the long-rumored deal with Baen is finally going ahead then they will be offering multiple formats at good prices.

If not: Expect $16+ per book and all the major DRM formats.

Since the paperback goes for $6.99 at amazon that price would be a little discouraging

Yeah, but there are a lot of books I can get the paperback cheaper for. Doesn't make much sense to me. I know that ebooks have costs different than printed books, but still that still shouldn't make it cost more (and sometimes way more).

This is something I really looks forward to.
I don't care what other say, but I think it is an amazing series.

I just hope that that it won't be a Kindle only release.
I have previously read on dragonmount that Tor Books would like to publish it for the Kindle.
