Ooops, didn't know it was. Sorry, I guess I should have looked more closely.

Sorry about that Harry. A site which looked so professional and that offered 24 hour support did not click my radar. What was it that tipped you off to it being a "pirate book site"?

Again, sorry, I'll be more careful and discrete in the future.

Actually, I'm wondering this too. I now can't recall the name, of course, so I can't go investigate, senile old bat that I am...

Now with the help of modern electronics, the internet and me (also a senile old bat) you can go investigate, you senile old bat. (see private)

Quite simply put: it was their impossible bundle pricing. No upstart site (they only have 500 eBook titles) can offer all the Game of Thrones audiobooks for $19.99. 11 Harry Potter ebooks for $9.99? 42 John Grisham titles for $29.99?? C'mon... who's even entertaining the notion they're legit?

Never mind the claim of "Compatible with All Devices." Not a single one of the titles I saw are available anywhere without DRM. So how exactly is this 500-title eBook store going to sell you huge bundles of Kindlebooks that are going to be keyed to your Amazon account without running the sale through Amazon (who can't sell bundles of ebooks themselves that cheaply)? The answer is: they're not. They're going to sell you pirated, DRM-free copies of retail ebooks in any format you want.

That site just screamed piracy.

I agree that they are el-cheapo. And they SEEM utterly crazy, price-wise. I just...they certainly put in a lot of effort to look legit, for a change. I can usually spot Pirate sites at 50 paces. (And yes, Doug, the old "if it looks too good to be true..." can certainly apply.) I only looked at the Dresden bundle, and didn't look around at the others. Just...glance and go.

Yeah, it's...interesting that nobody has done anything about them. That's not typical, I can tell you most certainly, for RH or the others. They're usually all over these sorts of guys like the proverbial stink on XXXX, ya know? I'll reach out to some industry folks, see what they have to say about 'em.

Anyone know how long they've been sitting there? (I guess that's a dumb question, 'cuz, if you've been buying from them, who's gonna admit it now????)

Cool The Strand Magazine: There’s Something About Harry


Quote:
There’s Something About Harry: A Look into Jim Butcher’s Character Harry Dresden
Posted on July 27, 2018 by Kurt Anthony Krug
There’s Something About Harry
Jim Butcher talks about the evolution of his character Harry Dresden


New York Times best-selling novelist Jim Butcher hates telling people no.

That’s why he’s written a dozen different short stories for a dozen different anthologies featuring his famous creation Harry Dresden, the protagonist of The Dresden Files, a critically acclaimed series of urban fantasy novels. However, since many fans can’t afford to buy twelve different anthologies, Jim Butcher has collected the short stories in the recently released Brief Cases . . . READ ARTICLE HERE!

I'm thinking the new book won't be out until next year sometime.
