For an eBook??????? 'The Tyrant's Law', book three in Daniel Abraham's 'Dagger and Coin' series just cost me US$18.21, The paperback copy only costs US$10.98!! WHAT THE FUCK!!! Is it just me or is there something seriously wrong with that? How the Fuck can Orbit justify an eBook costing $8 more than the physical copy of the exact same book? Whats more the previous two books only cost me $9.99 each on release. So the price has doubled in a year!
Now its got to be Orbit ripping me off, as Amazon conveniently has "price set by publisher" under the price for the eBook. I'm assuming Amazon set the price they sell the physical copy at and I'll assume they aren't selling it less than what they paid for it, which to me means Orbit is either laughing all the way to the bank with my money or Amazon being the evil corporation they are, are selling the physical copy of the book at a loss just to make Orbit's eBook pricing policy look like a fucking ripoff!!!
So once again WTF!!!!!!!!
Oh and I'm quite willing to pay $18 for the book as it's probably the best fantasy currently being written. I just don't appreciate being ripped off/punished for buying the eBook version! Or did I miss the memo where eBooks now cost more to produce and "ship" than physical books?
And yes I could well be an arse. wah wah!
