One of my favorite authors (Neal Asher) is published by Tor in the US
"Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest."
- Denis Diderot (1713-1784)

At the bottom, lol:
This program will end when the site launches, but you can keep the free books; we won’t be erasing them with our orbital attack electromagnets. (Yet.) Did we mention, watch the skies?

David Weber and some others kinda lead the charge here. David offered up a couple of his books, one early novel and a newer Honor novel as proof that offering free copies electronically doesn't hurt sales. Tor has found, if I'm not mistaken, that they have attracted a lot of new fans and increased hard copy sales across the board.

To bad MPAA and RIAA can't get the idea.


MPAA/RIAA die die die die die!!!!!!
