Rick Moody Has A New eBook Out Today

Author Rick Moody has a new book out called The Four Fingers Of Death. The above trailer for the book illustrates the post apocalyptic theme of Moody’s first foray into science fiction writing. The book is about an author with writer’s block in 2025, who wins the job of writing a novel version of a 1960s B-movie.

The eBook and hardcovers were both released today by Little, Brown & Company. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Apple’s iBookstore have the eBook for $12.99. Borders does not have the eBook version yet. While Moody is a well-known author, $12.99 might be too high a price for a digital book. Perhaps the publisher should consider $9.99 to help sell more copies. What do you think?
