Tor has just announced over on the SF community Tor.com that they have followed though on the promise made 2 months ago. All ebooks published by Tor are now available DRM-free from all ebookstores currently selling them.
“It’s clear to us that this is what our customers want,” said senior editor Patrick Nielsen Hayden. “We see it in the success of SF publishers like Baen and Angry Robot that have preceded us in going DRM-free. To the best of our knowledge we’re the first division of a Big Six publishing conglomerate to go down this road, but we doubt very much that we’ll be the last.”
There’s no word yet on the ebookstore that Tor-Forge plans to open at Tor.com, but it is expected to launch sometime this summer.
