Can you explain the pricing shenanigans that result in the Kindle version being $2 more than the paperback? That just seems wrong to me, but I'm not privy to how books are actually priced...

Lou Anders said...

Confused. The paperback is $15.99 and the Kindle is $9.99.

Tell me what to do?

JP said...

My bad. When I looked at the prices, I looked at the paperback price just below the Kindle price, which is $7.99. I assumed that was Amazon's price, but it isn't, it's some other bookseller.

Amazon has it listed, for me, at $10.87 for the paperback. A rather specific number for the price, but there you go...

Hi Lou,

Great anthology. My review will be appearing in the Sacrament/SF Book review soon.

The Cook and Lynch stories were the big stand-outs for me. In fact, reading the Cook hastened my re-read of The Black Company.

It would be great to see somebody (maybe Pyr!) publish some of Greg Keyes' Fool Wolf stories/novels.

Hi Rob,
Saw the review--much appreciated. Edge Books (I think) already did a collection of Fool Wolf stories. I'm hoping for an ebook edition.
