Norman Spinrad has been posting a series at his blog about the current "Death Spiral" of the publishing industry. It's been pretty depressing reading but Spinrad tries to pull it up in the final installment with a vision of how the electronic publishing industry can survive and thrive without the traditional book publishers.
It's a wonderful vision of a gloriously free market and grist for the mill for small e-publishers like my partner and I. But to my mind it's a little too unrealistic.
Nevertheless, this is Norman Spinrad and it is well worth perusing for his insights into the industry.
I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?
