    I’m surprised that Baen doesn’t show up here.

    The fact that they have been selling e-books direct will mean that they aren’t going to have as high a profile on Amazon e-books, but they should show up on the p-book lists.

    They use S&S as their printer/distributor, but I would expect the imprint lists to show them.

      I was purchasing from Baen (ebooks) back before they completely changed their marketing structure (and prices) several years ago. I’ve pretty much ignored Baen since then. I’m sure I’m not the only customer who bailed on them then. But, yeah, I would think Baen would have a significant presence in any stats on SF&F sales.

        I haven’t bailed on BAEN.
        I still buy their monthly bundles religiously.
        The availability of the bundles changed but not the pricing. You still get 4-5 new releases for $18. (Depending on how long you’ve been buying from them.) Which is to they are well within the sweet spot for ebook sales. And they do surface new writers with some regularity, albeit less than before since some of their “new”authors are established veterans.

        I hope they are doing well; they’ve treated ebook readers well over the decades.

  2. Since releasing the first tentative volumes of the Future Chronicles SF&F anthology series, and seeing them rise to the top of the lists, I’ve had the gut feeling that something like this was true… but now you’ve put numbers on it. Thanks for sharing… amazing work!

  3. I don’t know why anyone would be surprised that SFF readers would be ebook adopters. Someone who has been reading about future technology and/or magic is the perfect audience for electronic delivery, whether text or audio.
