The Future Is Here!

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Perhaps you've been saying to yourself, "Gosh, I think I'd really love Pathfinder Tales novels, but I just can't bring myself to buy a paper novel when my e-reader is so much more convenient!" Maybe you're desperately curious about the further adventures of Radovan and Jeggare following the Pathfinder's Journal in Council of Thieves, but your eco-friendly ideology can't justify buying the story when it's printed on dead trees.

Never fear! As part of Paizo's continuing efforts to bring you the future in a timely and convenient fashion, Pathfinder Tales novels are now available in ePub and PDF format, as well as on Apple's iBookstore! Whether you want to download them from iBooks or purchase the files directly from us on paizo.com, each new Pathfinder Tales novel that comes out will be available in a variety of formats. (At the moment, we don't yet support the Kindle, but we're looking into it.) What's more, subscribers to the print Pathfinder Tales line will also receive electronic copies of their books absolutely free.

But that's not all—starting with Dave Gross's "The Lost Pathfinder," completed web fiction stories are also going to be available in all the same formats, downloadable for a nominal fee. (Of course, for those who want to read them in a web browser, all the stories will continue to be both free and archived in perpetuity—this just offers one more way to read them.)

The future: it's here, and it's all about carrying your bookshelf in your pocket. So bust out those comlogs and tricorders and check out Prince of Wolves and "The Lost Pathfinder."

So we'll get them with smart quotes? Excellent!

Excellent.


Even though my e-reader of choice is my Kindle and I'll therefore have to wait, I'm insanely excited about this. Thank you Paizo!

Is it possible to use Calibre to convert the epub into a format the kindle can read?

Absolutely. I didn't sign up for the Tale Subscription until I tested it out. I got the Prince of Wolves epub file, passed it through Calibre, and read it on my Kindle. Not a problem at all.

Any idea as to price for the Web Fiction? Anything more than $0.50 to $0.99 would be a bit of a rip off.

The Web Fiction installments will be priced at $0.99 in ePub format.

Beauty. Thanks for the info.


Nice first step, now please get that Kindle support going. As soon as I can get these novels on my Kindle (without jumping through hoops) I will. Good luck.

We'd offer them worldwide if we could, but Apple currently only offers us the ability to sell them in the iBookstores for the US, Canada, France, Germany, and the UK. When they add more, we'll add more!

The French fans are doing an amazing job with the French Pathfinder wiki. Chapter II of "The Secret of the Rose and Glove" went live about fourteen hours ago and they've already got a hand done translation up on their site.

In fact, all the WebFiction to date has been translated.

Here's the French Pathfinder site:

"Le bûcher des traîtresses" is "The Torching of the Traitoresses" in French.

Thanks for the info.

I suspected that Apple would be to blame (from looking at the current Austrian iBookstore), now I got the confirmation.

"Bob's your uncle (sometimes elaborately Robert's your father's brother) is a commonly used expression mainly in Britain, Ireland and Commonwealth nations. Typically, someone says it to conclude a set of simple instructions to mean, "and there you have it," or "you're all set." For example, "To make a ham sandwich, just put a piece of ham between two slices of buttered bread, and Bob's your uncle."

(From Wiki)

Thus when you said that you couldn't get the fiction in Austria, the reverse of this was true...

They've added Australia, so look for them in the Aussie iBookstore soon!
