I'm really sorry to see this go. I even have the Calibre script I run weekly to get a early e-version for my Kindle. And, honestly, I'm a little sad to see Paizo grow too big for free fun weekly stuff.

-sigh-

I'm not angry. I'm not screaming. But I did cancel my subscription. At this point, I would prefer the ebook to the physical copy. Paying a bit more to get the physical copy AND the digital was fine by me. Since that isn't an option... ah well...

I will get the ebooks and pick and choose the physical copies for my "collection." of course, the first book IS a Dave Gross Jeggare book. And because it is, I find out this....

I ordered the physical copy at Amazon for $11.24 (25% off the cover or $3.75 cheaper). Then I returned later to check something (the spelling of "Jeggare") and guess what I see? Rather than going to the page for the physical copy, I went to the ebook page. And since I've purchased the dead-tree edition, I can now order the digital copy for $2.99 under something called "Book Match."

In other words, the physical and the digital versions for roughly the price of the physical copy alone.

What was planet stories? Was it golarion-related?

I met Mr Mona the year Pathfinder BETA rules came out at GenCon. I asked him what he would recommend in the Planet Stories. I don't remember what he told me.... but since I got the entire run, I figure he succeeded in selling me on the line. I've since been trying to find MORE of that old fiction. Anyone have a copy of Year of the Angry Rabbit I can buy... reasonably priced? :)

Count me as one who would end the subscription if the included electronic copy ends. I'll probably just switch to picking up the odd ebook at amazon every now and then.

More timely and regular epub versions of the short fiction? I love the short stories, but find reading them on the screen more than annoying. I'm FINE paying the $1 for a nice epub. I just hope to get them in a more timely fashion and not in a large dump at the end of the year.... unless you guys plan to package them as single volume. :)

As for the Tales line in general? Maybe a novel or two that covers a point in Golarion History. Bring the world's PAST alive.

I've been hounding Paizo for epub versions since the first episodes went up. We've gotten 32 short stories. And that is it. THIS is a GREAT way to read them. Complete with in line images. Thanks!

YAY! Been WAITING! I would LOVE a "subscription" model that automatically sends me the short fiction as it is completed on the website. Seriously! I KNOW you guys are giving it away free... I just would like an epub version. :)

I doubt we've seen a lot. WotC is NOT going to give us a game that pretty much fits into a 75 page book.....

However, I am enjoying the simpler rules (though I get that with Savage Worlds already).

Our mobile applications are only being distributed through Google Play and the iTunes store at the moment.

Sorry.. I should have clarified. I'm using a Rooted Nook tablet with access to the Play Store. Yet the app is listed as incompatible. Perhaps it is the version of Android?

I'd hoped things would pick up again in 2012... and I ill still look forward to Planet Stories starting back up in the future. I'll second the appreciation for introducing me to Manly Wade Wellman. He is, without a doubt, the best thing I've been exposed to in the run. Mr Mona, you handed me my first Planet Stories book at GenCon a few years ago and I can't thank you enough. Since then Brackett, Burroughs, Moore, Lovecraft, and more have sprung to life for me. Thanks a bunch and I look forward to more in the future.

I really do hope the line continues. Even with sporadic releases it has been a treasure.

I agree. This line got me into this genre. The only reason I cancelled MY subscription is the THREE Silverberg novels in a row. I'm not a fan and couldn't justify the expense. But I do hope the line continues... especially if there was more Manly Wade Wellman or Brackett or Kline etc. :)

Sovereign Court

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'd been hoping for more along the lines of Manly Wade Wellman, Otis Kline and Leigh Brackett and less of Silverberg and Hugh Cook. Ah well....

Sovereign Court

That is fantastic. And Hopefully I will be able to get Mr Reynolds to sign it at next years GenCon.

This seems like a good thread for my post......

Was in my FLGS today and found two, just-in Leigh Brackett books:

Shannach - The Last: Farewell to Mars

Lorelei of the Red Mist

Apparently, there's a publisher named Haffner that's been putting out some of this style of books. The store manager also told me they had previously published a book Brackett wrote with her husband. Can't remember the name.

Sweet! Found the books at Haffner Press. http://www.haffnerpress.com/

The book with her husband (Edmond Hamilton) COULD be Stark and the Star Kings.

Having a Kindle and several of your epubs I saw the links to Calibre. I clicked on the link above and was invited to download version 0.8.17. I tend to avoid software that the makers are not comfortable to even label as version 1.0. How good is Calibre? Is it fairly stable, and consistent?

I've been using Calibre for about a year now. I've upgraded each time and have NEVER had a problem. I use both the Windows version and the Linux version and STILL have had no problems. Just for the record, I have the Kindle 3. If there are glitches with other readers, I don't know what they are and haven't encountered them. Seriously, Calibre is first rate.

Thanks to Planet Stories, my eyes were opened to a whole new world of science fiction and fantasy. One of my absolute favorites outside of the imprint is Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter of Mars. Disney released the trailer recently and it looks amazing. Any one else have some comments?

I tried converting one of your files repeatedly, but it didn't work. It is protected by DRM. Thanks for helping me waste my money on your useless format which I can't use.

Three questions.... do you mean you tried to convert one of the Paizo files? Which one? Were you using Calibre to do it?

Just to be clear, I KNOW... extended experience from the first files released... that converting epub files to mobi files works on every single epub Paizo has released. It's not as simple as click on file A and select "Convert to Kindle readable version."

If you tried to convert a PDF to a mobi, then you MAY have a problem converting. But I have never tried this so I can't state for certain.

Please give me a little more information so I can help. :)

ePubs are not entirely compatible with the Kindle: they usually require some conversion first. Calibre is free and we've gotten good feedback about its ability to convert our ePubs to the Kindle format.

I'll second the use of Calibre. I use it all the time. The conversion process is VERY easy.

By the way, Calibre will not only convert the file, it will upload it to your Kindle if it's connected by USB or you can set it up to email it your Kindle.
