Gollancz to Reduce Price of 2014 Debut eBooks

Gollancz, the science fiction and fantasy imprint of Orion Publishing Group, announced that the eBook editions of its 2014 debut authors will be reduced to £1.99 for the first week of publication. All pre-orders and purchases made up to a week after publication will benefit from this reduced price.

Gollancz already has a proven record of discovering and publishing new science fiction and fantasy authors. Previous notables including Ben Aaronovitch, Joe Abercrombie, Elspeth Cooper, Elizabeth May, Suzanne McLeod, Hannu Rajaniemi , Alastair Reynolds, and  the adult fantasy debut of Joanne M. Harris.

Darren Nash, Digital Publisher at Gollancz writes:

“When we publish a debut novel, we’re very aware that we’re asking readers to take a chance on something new, rather than spend their money on an established author they know they’ll enjoy. That becomes even more challenging at a time like this, when money doesn’t stretch as far as it used to. So, we’ve decided to help. We’re confident that all of our debut authors are wonderful new talents that you should read – so confident, in fact, that we’re prepared to put our money where our mouth is and make it possible for you to try these books for less than the price of a Saturday newspaper.”

The Gollancz debuts that will be included in this initiative are The Boy With the Porcelain Blade by Den Patrick, In Dark Service by Stephen Hunt, Barricade by Jon Wallace, The Seventh Miss Hatfield by Anna Caltabiano, The Incorruptibles by John Horner Jacobs and The Relic Guild by Edward Cox.

This looks like a great time to expand those eBook libraries that so many of us have with an injection of fresh blood and new styles of writing. As Darren Nash says above, the price is certainly right.
