Default Who else isn't buying 'Scars' till it's released whole?

Posting a new thread as it's not really a discussion about the novel itself and I don't want to see any accidental spoilers.

So yeah, is anyone else waiting this one out until it's released in novel format or complete ebook format. Because Black Library can seriously go fuck themselves if they think I'm going to pay £18 for an ebook when they normally cost £6/£12(if enhanced edition). I mean really, why the fuck would I actually do that, I've got the money for it, no problem, I'm just not doing it on the basis that they are blatantly ripping people off under some pretense of a 'new exciting format', how the fuck is it exciting to read a book over twelve damn weeks?! Talk about killing any flow you might have.

So yeah, still can't quite believe they are pulling this stunt, and won't be buying it until it's available in a complete and cheaper format(shit pay £2 more and you get the hardback collectors edition!). Wanting to know what's happening is killing me, but i'll let that ride out before supporting this.

Same, I'm not buying it until it's released. If BL want to go the serial route that many fantasy and Sci Fi stories used to be told, fine, that's a great idea, but eother they need to lower the price to be equivalent to a chapter. Or do what many old magazines did and do this for multiple titles. So that when I pay I get chapters from 3-5 other stories.

Unless BL know something we don't, anyone with a brain could work out that as is its more expensive than buying it as a whole. Which is madness.

So yeah I'm waiting and just avoiding spoilers best I can while I do.

Amen. When I can get both the hardback and paperback version for the price of a single ebook, something is seriously wrong. I can afford it, and heck, I spend plenty of money on some of the stupidest things around, but I refuse to be ripped off. They can go stuff this up their arse.

Well I'm going to buck the trend and admit I've invested! Great read so far. Still waiting for episode III on the Subscriber's Edition though.

I've no doubt it's good, which makes it all the more disappointing to me. They knew fans were heavily awaiting this novel with a hell of a lot of interest and anticipation, and in my eyes they've taken advantage of that fact and tried to exploit a little bit more money from everyone.

I prefer to read a book straight though, and will wait till it comes out complete. I'm sure it'll work out cheaper as well.

I actually just noticed the difference in the currency exchange when it comes to buying the chapters in € or £. It's £1.50, or €2.99. Now, at the exchange rate as of close of business today £1.50 is worth €1.74. How the fuck are they getting away with that at a time when euro and sterling have rarely been closer to parity? It's been said before, but I'm gonna say it again...

FUCK YOU, GW, FUCK YOU!
