Browsing the Amazon Store on my Kindle earlier today, trying to decide if a subscription to Kindle Unlimited was worth my tenner a month (it isn't), I came across the 'book' you can see in the image below.
It doesn't take a genius to figure out why I took a closer look at it...
Now, I can see at least three things wrong with this publication:
- It's five pages long.
- It's described as a 'saga' (...that word. I do not think it means what you think it means).
- It's $7. That's $1.40 per page (to put that in perspective, the Tarkin novel is slightly over 4¢ per page).
Eagle-eyed readers may have already noticed that the good Doctor's name appears on the left-most book in the 'also bought' pane (See it? The one sporting the cover image ripped off from the Assassin's Creed franchise?)
Yes, Dark Jedi Elite has a sequel (or prequel, it's hard to tell) called Shadow Order of the Dark Jedi.
This second masterpiece, too, is $7 for five pages of what must surely be the most rivetting Star Wars prose ever penned.
Ahh, the Kindle marketplace; "If you write it, they will buy".
