TOR goes digital

SFF imprint TOR Books has joined publisher Baen in selling unencrypted science fiction and fantasy e-books.

"We've tested a lot of e-book waters, including various cockamamie schemes involving overpriced e-books laden with DRM," TOR Books Executive Editor Patrick Nielsen Hayden told SFcrowsnest.

"Oddly enough," Hayden continued, "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."
