Jose Saramago eBook Box Set To Sell For $36

The New York Times is reporting that Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will publish eBook editions for twelve of José Saramago’s novels. The novels and an additional novella will be sold in an eBook collection for $36.

The New York Times has more: “’In print, it would be unwieldy and expensive, but electronically, it is affordable and convenient,’ Bruce Nichols, the senior vice president and publisher of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, said. ‘Now readers can complement their Saramago print titles and discover some new gems they may have missed.’ Mr. Saramago, the Portuguese Nobel laureate, died in June at the age of 87. This e-book equivalent of a box set, titled “The Collected Novels of José Saramago,” will be available on Nov. 29, with novels including “Blindness,” “The Gospel According to Jesus Christ” and “Baltasar and Blimunda,” along with an introductory essay by Ursula LeGuin.”
