npr_logo E-book pricing seems to be much in the news today. This morning, NPR has a story on the e-book pricing argument, covering both the standard publishing agency line that e-books should cover publishers’ overhead costs (via publisher Jason Epstein) and the belief that e-books should cost less (via analyst James McQuivey and freelance writer Chris Dannen).

It is a quite well-balanced report, laying out the major arguments on both sides. The only drawback is that it does not mention Baen, which makes a great counter-example to the argument that e-books necessarily have to be expensive.
