  1. Maybe I have totally missed the point of ebooks, since I don’t have an ebook reader, but surely they should be cheaper than a paper copy?

  2. Liz, I agree. I don’t have a reader either, but if an ebook is not significantly cheaper than a paper copy there is no chance I would ever purchase one. Assuming, of course, I had a reader.

  3. The imprint will target early adopters of science fiction, who begin reading the genre between the ages of 14 and 16

    Those don’t sound like very early early adopters.

    It is an interesting decision to splint their imprints like this. I guess it is because Voyager is seen as a fantasy imprint regardless of the odd claim that “we really see Voyager as the gold standard for science fiction”. I can’t actually remember seeing any interesting science fiction from Voyager recently so I went to check their website. Oh dear. Anyway, it will be interesting to see how Angry Robot turns out because Solaris had an interestign – albeit not very good – list.

    PS The actual press release seems a bit different to the one Anders posted.

  4. I would totally buy a book from an Angry Robot, even though I am not in their group of “massively aggressive” consumers.

  5. As a heads up, I will mention that I’ve read ECLIPSE TWO, and the Ted Chiang story is, well, Ted Chiang. It took my breath away. (Which is a pun as you will see when you read the story.)

    (Very fine book overall, I will add.)

  6. Re Angry Robot press releases – Lou’s note was derived from a piece in The Bookseller (journal of the UK booktrade). It’s… well… yeah. Let’s just say that perhaps the reporter’s shorthand failed him on the day. The real pr linked to above, at the HC site, is the right one.
