“The Brothers Magnus”
Tor continues to dither as to when and how to publish mass market editions of my Speak to the Devil and When the Saints. Both books continue to be available in hardcover and e-book form, but the e-books were still priced at the “hardcover” price of $18.73. I politely pointed out to my editor, Liz Gorinsky, that this was ridiculous and suggested they try $4.99. Liz agreed in principle and the price has now dropped all the way to $13.49. That’s better, but my Against the Light, which is two years younger but published by Amazon (47North), is priced at $3.99 and the sales rankings show that it must be selling at least ten times as many copies. On that assumption, which would you rather have: $13.49, or $39.90? Some people haven’t cottoned on to the digital thing yet.
