Senior Press Officer at Pan Macmillan. I handle publicity for a wide range of fiction titles, including the Tor list in full. Favourite things about my job include travelling the UK with some of my favourite writers, reading manuscripts as soon as they come in and occasionally appearing in space operas.

TOR UK EBOOK TITLES TO GO DRM-FREE

Tor UK, Pan Macmillan’s science fiction and fantasy imprint, announces today that it will make its ebooks DRM-free over the next three months.

“We know that this is what many Tor authors passionately want. We also understand that readers in this community feel strongly about this,” says Jeremy Trevathan, Pan Macmillan’s Fiction Publisher.

This decision has been made in partnership with our sister company Tor Books, an imprint of Tom Doherty Associates, LLC, in New York. We are consulting with our authors at the moment and we will announce our plans in more detail in due course.

    Good news – I will ensure I buy all my TOR books direct, rather than via Amazon, whilst you are DRM free.

    My kindle is extremely useful, especially whilst travelling, but is in neither consumers nor publishers interests to grant Amazon a monopoly.

    That would definitely encurage me to go here rather than elsewhere. DRM is anti-customer. Can’t wait

    Well done and thank you somewhere else to buy DRM free e-books I have an ereader and a Nokia I now can buy books from from Tor and read them on my phone as Nokia has no Kindle or Kobo so cannot read DRM books on my Nokia. Hope this is the start of more publishers making DRM free e-books.
