Baen Books eBookstore Updated

Baen Books, an early pioneer in DRM-free eBooks, has joined the 21st century.

For many years now Baen Books has been selling their eBooks via a website called Webscriptions. ThisĀ  eBookstore mainly stocked their titles as well as titles from a few other publishers, and you could buy the eBooks individually or as part of the monthly WebScriptions bundles.

The old site at is gone, and it now redirects to All existing accounts were also moved over to the new site, so all you’ll need to do to download your eBooks is log in again.

I don’t recall getting an email about the change, so if you missed the news then you’re not alone. But I’m glad that they made the change. Baen has used that same Webscriptions site since I first bought ebooks from them in 2004. The design was adequate for the day, but trust me when I say that it looked like something out of the 90s.
