In December we reported that Baen would start selling its books through Amazon. On January 24th, publisher Toni Weisskopf said in her section of Baen’s forums, “I am able to announce informally that we’ll be selling books at the Apple iBookstore pretty soon. Target is early February, but we’ll post a formal release with the date as soon as we know it. No DRM, same prices as elsewhere. EARCs and limited time discount monthly bundles still only at Baen.”
Baen has an almost fanatical following in the SF field, and I’m sure this will be a real boost to its sales. For some of the history of the company and its innovations see the previous article linked above.
