Who is Emmet, anyway?

Emmet is the name of our resident golem mascot. That's him in our logo (designed by Mary Robinette Kowal). Emmet's name derives from the Hebrew word emet, meaning "truth" (the funny looking red text at the bottom of our webpages): for more on this word and its connection to golems, see wikipedia.

What's your position on ebooks?

We like ebooks. We like the convenience. We like the possibilities they open up. But we also like books made out of paper. Each has their place, and we want to see them peacefully co-exist.

We think that if you've bought a physical book - whether hardbound or paperback - that you shouldn't be expected to pay for it a second time just because you want to read it on a device. So as we goforward, we're acquiring ebook rights (specifically ePub and mobi formats) for the books we publish. We're also negotiating to acquire those rights for our previous books.

What this means for you is simple: where we have the e-rights, we'll offer "bundles" on this site so that you can buy a paper book - either hardbound or paperback -and get the ebook at no extra charge. And we'll do this retroactively to anyone who bought a book from us in the past.


I have another question.
