The Psi-Phi Project: Re(8561): Dissappointments

John Ordover has said in the past that Pocket was one of the last publishers to raise the prices on their books. Keeping books smaller in the page count is a way to keep those costs down. If a lower-than-average page count is done in conjunction with a slightly smaller typeface (to fit a 270 page book into a 220 page book), I’m not going to complain. It’s when the typeface typically used in a 270 page book is used in the same point size in a 220 page book that it’s painfully obvious that we’re dealing with a shorter book, and complaints are, I think, justified.
