Comments Off on 5 stages of Amazon Appstore
I jest, of course. Nothing is free, and if I’d like to play Carcassonne – which wasn’t bad as a phone adaptation of a board game goes – for free, the cost is dealing with Amazon’s App Store and making sure I log in. If I don’t like that, then I can delete both (which I did) and pay for it elsewhere – which I haven’t yet; there is nothing more annoying than trying to move the board and accidentally playing a piece because you touched a valid play spot. Until that is fixed I consider the current price too high.

Twelve years or so I was at a web agency and Zelda, who I had worked with in my first few weeks with the company, left to write a novel. I remember her mentioning it had shrunken heads in the story. And now Caposcripti is up on Amazon. Brilliant. Downloaded to my Kindle ready to read.

Comments Off on Any reason why a Kindle edition is more expensive?
I don’t mind paying the same price for digital editions of books, after all the author needs to eat and the publishers need to publish, but paying more? What gives? I’d understand if there was a need to reformat the digital edition, but “Rule 34” by Charlie Stross (for example) isn’t even formatted properly for a Kindle. So an extra £1 for Drew Macgary’s “The End Specialist“? Ouch.
“The End Specialist” (“The Postmortal” in the U.S) does sound interesting, though. Will wait for price to drop.
