Arthur Hailey Makes a Digital Comeback
Mainstream publishers are beginning to understand the value of digitising their backlists. Forty years ago, Arthur Hailey (famous particularly for Airport) was one of America’s best-known novelists. Today nine of his eleven novels are out of print. However, this is about to change, as all of his novels are going to be reissued as e-books at the price of £14.99 each. Jane Friedman, CEO of Open Road Integrated Media, the company that will produce the Hailey titles in e-format, said, ‘digital books are driving the sale of older titles because you don’t have to worry about going to a bookstore and finding the books you want to buy aren’t on the shelves’.
