  2. Unless these authors are far more popular than I believe they are, they’re not going to sell many copies at that price. And no ebook? In 2016? Or is that something that’ll come before publication?

  3. @Patrick W

    A number of publishers don’t put out the ebooks at the same time as a brand new release. Sometimes it’s a few days later. Other times it can take as long as a year before the ebook is released. The prices on both books look about average to me based on similar books.

    Seven Wonders of a Once and Future World now has an ebook available on Amazon/Kindle for $5.99. I assume it is/will shortly be available in ebook format elsewhere. Sometimes it takes time for the data to propagate through the distribution and retailer databases.
