Angry Robot Books now offer an ebook subscription plan

As celebration for making it to their second anniversary, the SF publisher Angry Robot announced today that they're now offering a yearly subscription plan for their ebooks.

For a measly 69 quid you can download and read all the titles that Angry Robot publish in the next year. That's 2 books a month for the next 12 months.

But if you don't want to subscribe, you can still buy the ebooks from their ebookstore. You will find them as reasonably priced DRM-free Epub.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. What’s a quid worth?

    • He’s a character on a children’s cartoon. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

      The price is 69 British pounds. I used quid in the hopes that someone would ask what it is.

  2. Angry Robot’s much more a fantasy publisher than Sci-Fi. Of their current 38 titles, they classify 21 as fantasy and only 9 as sci-fi. The others are 4 steampunk and 4 horror titles.

    This is important, because the 24-title subscription costs a bit more than buying 15 of their e-books. If you’re at all picky about which variety of speculative fiction you like to read, you very well could do better just buying the e-books that you like.

    Of course, if you want to buy the subscription just to show support for Angry Robot, that works, too.

    As for what a quid’s worth: figure £3 = $5 (US or Canadian). That’ll get pretty darned close right now, especially after allowing for the likely 4% currency-exchange fee on your credit card.

  3. I have bought a few Angry Robot books including the recent Embedded by Dan Abnett from Kobo Books. Since they do not use the agency pricing, the books come out to be around $2-$3 each if you use the Kobo discount codes they always give out.
