You got it! The publishers think we're that stupid!
Better grab it while you can - years from now that little ePub file could be worth millions!
By the way - that Hawkmoon book is published by TOR - which is part of Macmillan, which is the main perpetrator of the agency model - so you might consider buying it now in case the price goes up.
Yeah, I bought 30 books in the last week from here plus another 20 from Baen including the Fafhrd And Grey Mouser 7 parter.
Not sure if Bean is part of S&S, but I didn't want to take a chance. Turns out that $5.00 w/no tax is my price point sweet spot.
Oh, and I read 120-130 books last year. I know because I sell them at my local used bookseller in lots of 25, only this year I got behind and brought all 5 boxes in over a two month period. They don't have room for anymore, which sucks because I nearly have a nearly full boxl. Less than a dozen paperbooks to go and then its all digital and library rentals.
Anyway. Nice picture sub_rosa.
Baen is its own publishing company and has its own website for ebooks. You might want to check it out at baen.com.
That book is a reprint of a 1968 book. The book before it, originally published in 1967, is not available in ebook on B&N.
