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? :)
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.

We're actually working on the next batch right now, so hopefully we'll have it up before too long!
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. :)

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 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. :)
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.

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?
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. :)

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.
