New ereader devices: wishes and openness
by Chris Meadows
9 Jan 2020 at 11:50am
Ran across a couple of stories lately about new ebook reader devices. Actually, only one of them was about real devices, but the other one was just as interesting. On his Medium blog, writer Sumit Garg wishes for a new kind of ereader device in 2020. If you boiled down his list of wants, it […]

Is Macmillan justified in windowing new-release library ebooks?
by Chris Meadows
8 Jan 2020 at 7:53pm
For the last few months, I’ve been watching the story unfold of publisher Macmillan’s decision to start windowing new-release ebook sales to libraries. Given that it’s coming up on six months with no change, it doesn’t seem likely there’s an end in sight. In July of last year, John Sargent of Macmillan dropped a bombshell […]

by David Rothman
26 Dec 2019 at 7:21am
Toxic for libraries? The KKR investment firm is buying none other than OverDrive—the biggest library ebook company, providing ebooks and audiobooks to 43,000+ libraries and schools in 75 countries. The seller is Rakuten, also owner of the Kobo ereader, audiobook and ebook business. “The two sides did not provide a price tag for the Ohio-based […]

Agency pricing, antitrust, and the stagnation of the ebook market
by Chris Meadows
23 Dec 2019 at 10:44am
What a crazy decade it’s been, huh? Vox has a look back at the big ebook story of the decade: the Apple anti-trust lawsuit around agency pricing. It’s cast as an explanation of why the anticipated “ebook revolution” never precisely came, but per the article, that lawsuit (and its circumstances and consequences) is largely the […]

by Chris Meadows
19 Nov 2019 at 11:58am
The Justice Department is moving to phase out the consent decrees put in place in the wake of the 1948 Paramount Pictures anti-trust ruling, Slashfilm reports. (Also reported in Gizmodo and the Wall Street Journal (paywalled).) These decrees forced movie studios to divest themselves of their movie theater holdings, and put restrictions on how they […]

19 Sep 2019 at 11:20pm
The Republic of Ireland has just opened a new cultural institution, the Museum of Literature Ireland – sadly, just a few weeks too late for my visit to Dublin for Worldcon 77. A partnership between University College Dublin and the National Library of Ireland, the new museum, MoLI for short, is on St Stephen’s Green […]

by Paul StJohn Mackintosh
8 Sep 2019 at 12:48am
One advantage of being the national poet of a new nation is that you’ll be sure of some fine memorials after your death. William Butler Yeats, as the national bard of modern Eire, has received condign veneration, not least in the National Gallery of Ireland‘s superb exhibition Yeats: The Life and Works of William Butler […]

by Paul StJohn Mackintosh
15 Aug 2019 at 11:41pm
The Retrospective Hugo Awards (Retro Hugos) were added to the Hugo Awards from 1996 to commemorate works from years in which no Hugo Awards were given. They are optional Awards, and prior to 2017, marked years where a Worldcon was held but no Hugos were given. A rule change in 2017 expanded the scope to […]

Off to Dublin ? UNESCO City of Literature
by Paul StJohn Mackintosh
15 Aug 2019 at 4:44am
As a prelude to our coverage of Dublin 2019 – an Irish Worldcon, I’d like to briefly touch on Dublin’s status as a UNESCO City of Literature. Dublin received the title in 2010, only the fourth global city to do so. As the UNESCO dedication states, “the city was home to four Nobel Prize Laureates […]

The Tribit MaxBoom Bluetooth speaker is one of the many wireless audio devices out there now in a crowded marketplace, which can offer replay of your audiobooks, YouTube online books, text-to-speech ebooks, and other options for the audiophilic bibliophile. This is such a congested space now that it needs some extra push to stand out […]
