Simon & Schuster Releases “Catch-22” eBook

Simon & Schuster has released an eBook edition of Joseph Heller’s Catch-22. The release comes after a year of negotiations with Heller’s literary agent.

The Examiner.com has more: “Heller’s satirical look at war was first released in 1961 by S&S and has now become a classic. A special 50th anniversary edition is in the works to celebrate. ‘We were in regular talks with Joseph Heller’s literary agency regarding e-book rights for over a year,’ Jonathan Karp of Simon & Schuster said Wednesday. ‘With the 50th anniversary of Catch-22 approaching, and with e-books becoming an increasingly significant percentage of overall sales, we both realized the benefits of coming to terms sooner rather than later, and happily we did.’”

The eBook is available for $12.99.
