Tor joins Baen for more e-SciFi
More good news for SF e-book fans, plus a humorous quote. Tor Books is going to start publishing ebooks through Webscriptions right along with Baen. There is a quote from Tor's senior editor, Patrick Nielsen Hayden, about why they came to this decision:
"We've tested a lot of e-book waters, including various cockamamie schemes involving overpriced e-books laden with DRM.
Oddly enough, a lot of those "books" didn't even sell enough copies to pay for their file-conversion costs. Meanwhile, it hasn't escaped our notice that Jim Baen has been doing something that works, that people like, and that makes money. I'm delighted to be doing this pilot program; I think Jim has been clueful on this issue for a long time, while almost everyone else in publishing has been staggering around on stage hitting one another over the head with inflated pig bladders."
