It's meant to be an e-book. E-books are a much bigger thing now in the market than they were a few years ago, and this is Simon & Schuster's attempt to get back into that market with Trek. And it's only 25,000 words. It's a novella, not a novel.
Then maybe they should price it as such - it's impossible to justify paying $6 for a 25,000 word novella when I can get a full 100,000-word Trek
novel for the same price.
S&S needs to learn how to price eBooks. Look at the prices of the individual SCE eBooks.
76 pages at most and it's $5.99. This is way out of line.
