By: Tim Robine

Despite the popularity and the transition onto the big screen, the fiction genre often gets a bad rap. The guilty-pleasure, low-culture stigma of the Dungeons & Dragons-inspired fantasy novels can cause most readers to see them all painted with the same brush. But in almost the same way that the Internet has shaken up the newsroom, the e-book has shaken up the book genres as well. Recent studies into the purchases made have shown that genre fiction is not only keeping up with; but also possibly outpacing most other genres, even literary fiction.

The Dollars and Sense of Digital Books

In the the mid-to-late-19th Century the custom in England was to publish novels in three volumes which were affectionately known as "triple deckers."  They were published at artificially high prices for subscription library sales, and select readers willing to pay a lot for a new book. Cheap reprints came later.  The genesis of hardcover first.  High prices for new books sold to institutions, followed by cheap editions for the masses.  Commercial publishing is doomed if the price of new books continues to fall. At some point, even free will seem like a lot of money.  Cheap prices devalues literature. That's what the remarkable--and successful--campaign to adopt agency pricing was about.
