Barnes and Noble, Sterling Publishing, Nook books

So last weekend I went to B&N. It was the first time I'd been to one in a while Unlike reports I heard elsewhere, their Nook counter was still front and center with displays of the various Nook e-readers and tablets.

Anyway, I went over to the bargain books section and there were lots of interesting anthologies put out by their in-house Sterling publishing. Mainly collections of PD stuff, edited by Stefan Dziemianowicz. I tried looking several of them up on the Nook app and they weren't available.

I'm likely reading too much into it, but it felt typical of B&N that they didn't bother to have their own publisher put out editions for their own e-reader.

Looking at the B&N website it seems most of them went out of print long before the nook was released and are being sold by 3rd-party sellers. It makes sense that the remainders are now in the bargain section.

No. These are new collections and/or new editions. Barnes and Noble's self-owned Sterling Publishing creates these anthologies specifically for their bargain section. The price in the bargain section is there only price these books have had.

Here's some examples of the books I'm talking about: H.P. Lovecraft: The Complete Fiction (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions), Classic Horror Stories (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions), Penny Dreadfuls (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions): Sensational Tales of Terror, Great Ghost Stories: 101 Terrifying Tales, The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes: A Collection of Victorian Detective Tales

That last one would be a good read.
I have a couple of the PD ebook editions they used to give out and they were as go i d as the Delphi omnibusses.

But yes, it is B&N and it is business as usual that Sterling doesn't support Nook (even if a $3 ebook edition would generate more profit that a dead tree pulp edition) just as it is that B&N discounts don't apply to Nook.
