After announcing in April that it would begin releasing its titles DRM-free starting in July, Tor took the next step Monday afternoon saying that also beginning that month its e-books titles will be sold in the Tor/Forge DRM-Free E-book Store. The store will also include all Starscape, Tor Teen, and Orb e-book titles, eventually including titles from other publishers, as well.
“This isn’t in lieu of the existing online retailers, but in addition to them,” said publisher Tom Doherty. “We think there’s room for all kinds of retail models in the growing e-book field—and we aim in particular to provide a rich, informative browsing experience to fans and devotees of the kinds of books Tor and Forge have made their reputations publishing.”
The site will be hosted at www.tor.com.
