Interestingly, this got BBC Books what they wanted -- an American publisher. Ace Books picked up Roberts' Shada and Baxter's The Wheel of Ice for publication in North America. (I presume they're going to pick up Reynolds book as well.) This is something BBC Books has wanted since the mid-90s, someone to publish and distribute the books in North America rather than have to deal with an importer (which was a constant source of frustration for them even as late as a decade ago).
They may have wanted it, but I sure didn't. I much preferred not having to wait four-plus months from the release date before the ebooks became available here...
