I fully expect that many regular readers of this blog will already have enjoyed the mind-expanding pleasure that is the act of reading The Blade Itself. But if any of you are still considering a purchase, or perhaps are interested in supplementing your well-thumbed dead-tree editions with one of these new techno e-thingies what everyone’s talking about these days, I note that for the next couple of weeks, up until the 26th March, that classic of modern fantasy The Blade Itself is available for a mere £1.99. It’s true for the kindle edition. It’s true on iBooks too. It may well be true everywhere! In the UK, anyway.
The big publishers have tended to impose relatively stiff rules on the pricing of their ebooks in order to protect their hardcover markets (at least I assume that’s what they think they’re doing) which has led to some profoundly odd pricing structures with enormously discounted hardcovers and stubbornly inflexible (and on occasion higher) ebook prices, but under the bitter onslaught of reality things are gradually loosening up, I’m pleased to say. Contribute to the revolution and strike a blow in the cause of righteousness by buying huge numbers of discounted copies of my books now! Or something.
