Re: Modernizing old favorites

Alas, this is always a problem with science fiction, especially in 40-year-old-novels like Warlock in Spite of Himself . Jules Verne and HG Wells, whose science fiction stories once seemed so cutting edge and visionary, now seem downright quaint. I remember reading 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea when ...

Re: Should we post old short stories too?

Personally, I'm campaigning for "Mind Out of Time", my favorite GRIPE story. It's about 100 pages, so we might have to post it in chunks. Unfortunately, it was last published in 2003 (in a rather obscure short story collection), so we're not sure if the rights have reverted back yet -- in ...

Re: E-Commerce and making it happen!

I think we've got at least two new books from Chris, possibly four, and two from his friend Pete D'Alessio that we plan to put up. Once we've got the first 2-3 chapters for each of them out, we'll see which ones the fans want us to continue posting. Who knows? We might even do one from each author.

Re: Available as eBook?

Well, if nothing else, it will take time, even if every other step of the process is relatively quick and easy. As I mentioned before, the first thing to do is check out the legal situations - contracts, copyrights, etc - and see if it is even possible. Unfortunately, corporate bureaucracies are not...

How much would you pay for a Stasheff audiobook?

Please help us out with a little market research on audiobooks. Do you have any interest in downloading Stasheff audiobooks? If so, would you pay for it, or just try to find a free bootleg copy on the internet somewhere? If yes, what would you consider a fair price? Thanks in advance for your opinion!

How much would you pay for a Stasheff ebook?

Please help us out with a little market research on ebooks. First, would you pay money for a Stasheff ebook at all when you could probably find a bootleg on the internet for free? If yes, what would you consider a fair price?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Re: E-Commerce and making it happen!

Wow, thanks for the suggestions. I'd always assumed people wanting electronic versions of the books would raid the internet for illegal bootleg copies - why pay for it when you can get it free with a little effort? But, apparently, I forgot about the "iTunes Effect" - that when people are ...
