Hot good god damn!

Tor Books has just announced it’s going DRM-free on all its e-books.

I am so freaking filled with squee over this that I cannot *tell* you. DRM (digital rights management) is one of the things that permits Amazon to have a throttlehold on e-book sales: you can only buy a Kindle book for a Kindle reader, which means if you ever change e-readers you have to either re-buy everything or (realistically) go to the trouble of cracking/converting the DRM, or (even more realistically) pirating the books. But Tor is firing a shot across the bow with this, as far as I’m concerned, and I hope everybody sits up and pays attention. Yay!

And on the second hot good god damn of the evening, DON’T READ THIS BOOK is available for pre-order! I’m very excited about this one, so quick! Go forth! Buy, and prepare yourself for creepy stories!
