Electronic Version of The Mallet of Loving Correction Now Available

I noted it on Twitter the other day but not here, which is, frankly, inexplicable, so:  Hey! The electronic edition of The Mallet of Loving Correction is now available! Here it is on Amazon, B&N and Kobo. It’s also available on Amazon in Canada and UK and Germany, and probably other places as well but I didn’t check. Point is, it’s out and about. And pretty cheap, too: $5, or close to $5 US in other countries. Get it! (Unless you want the beautiful signed, limited hardcover. In which case, get that.)

  1. Cool! I got the signed copy of the book from Subterranean, but only took it out of its plastic once to make sure it was signed. The e-version I can actually take with me and read! :)

  2. @timeliebe: From the amazon page: Simultaneous Device Usage: Unlimited. That’s the indicator that there’s no DRM involved.

    Off to grab the ebook too, so I don’t have to risk my lovely limited edition while reading and eating dinner. :)

    I like that. I REALLY like that.

  4. DRM:

    SubPress doesn’t put it on and I don’t ask for it. So if you see it, a) we didn’t do it, b) go ahead and take it off, as far as I’m concerned.

  5. Sadly, the epub edition, at least for B&N, is horribly formatted. There are NO chapter stops — not even a Midpoint — and it frequently skips over pages and then repeats the next one. Which then throws everything else off, causing you to have to type in page numbers in that range and hoping to come across the missing ones and then hope to get back to where you were.

    Which impedes the flow of the prose something awful.

    It’s THE worst-formatted book I’ve ever gotten for Nook, and that includes a bunch of self-published freebies. They at least have a Midpoint marking and often a proper table of contents, and their page skip/repeats aren’t as frequent.

    Someone at the publisher screwed up, BADLY. It needs to be reformatted and re-uploaded.

    “Worst. Pagination. Ever.”

  6. I don’t have an extra $5 right now, but Amazon & Kindle provided me with enough material in its free sample to be getting on with for the moment.

  7. On a related note, I got an email from Subterranean today saying that they’d mailed my package. I got my copy of MALLET a week ago and have no idea what else they think I’ve ordered from them. The anticipation is killing me!

  8. The email version of this post said you’ve got an “electronic version of the mallet”. I assume that means you can mallet people farther away now? Cool, there are lots of people who need it.

    Oh. Nevermind.

  9. I purchased it…without your notice and am thoroughly enjoying it! I highly recommend it to all followers of this blog…and to everyone else.

  10. I purchased it, converted it to epub format and then I spent about four hours editing it so as to get into a format that was actually fit to read. The formatting was truly appalling. But on the bright side, I’ve now got it looking pretty with a proper, working table of contents. I’m about half way through reading it, and I’m enjoying it heaps!

  11. Is there going to be a paperback version? If so, I’llwait for that. Although I have an ebook reader, I prefer books Iin the hand. I suppose that marks me as hopelessly old fashioned, sigh.

  12. @Bonelady: Me too, especially if the e-book version suffers from awful formatting. I have enough books in my stack that I can wait a little while for this one. I hope!

  13. SubPress has gotten back to me and is trying to reproduce and solve the problem.

    Sounds like someone pushed the wrong button when they went to epub. Maybe @Alan Robson could help them. :) Alan, am glad to hear it’s not just me — maybe you could contact the publishers as well.

  14. Signed copy nr 523 arrived today in my postbox in Sweden courtesy of Subterranean Press. Very happy I am!!

  15. I’ll share that the hardcover from SubPress is absolutely beautiful. It even taught me a little about books. To make this post this I needed to know what the part of the book is that joins the front and back covers to the pages. I learned that this paper is called the Endpaper and it joins the Case (cover) to the Signatures (pages). The Endpaper in this book is beautiful. Many publishers just slap in white paper or maybe something with color; but they don’t even come close to this level of quality. This paper obviously cost extra, is distinct and tells the reader that time effort and thought went into making what they are holding.

    John produced great content and William Schafer delivered it in a beautiful package.

    Kudos and thanks to both.

  16. The signed hard cover is beautiful. I got it two weeks ago and started reading. Finished this week. I took some time to think about some of the articles. Which I think was some of the point to publishing them.

  17. Enjoying both this and the hard cover :) – my birthday being around now,the releases were well timed. Is ‘Hate Mail’ likely to come out in e-form sometime, please?
