Review: ?The Gathering Edge? by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
by Chris Meadows
21 Apr 2017 at 6:06pm
It’s just about time for the latest work from two of my favorite science fiction writers to hit the bookstores. The 20th book in Sharon Lee and Steve Miller’sexpansive Liaden Universe series,The Gathering Edge, hits bookstores on May 2. The publisher, Baen, released an electronic ARC version early, which I’ve read, and I can say […]

Google Books is not Alexandria redux
by Chris Meadows
21 Apr 2017 at 8:51am
It was just a few days ago that I last wrote about the way people tend to willfully misunderstand Google Books these days, and I had thought I was done with it, but I came across another article so wrong-headed that I just had to speak again. In this case, it’s a piece by James […]

Your mom can buy just so many books. Here?s how to outmarket the competition.
by Troy Lambert
18 Apr 2017 at 8:10am
How to stand out from the crowd? Unless you’re already Suzanne Collins, J. K. Rowling, or Stephen King, you need readers to find out who you are and what you write, so your books sell. Your mom can afford just so many copies. By the same token,although authors are the best ambassadors for their own […]

One-star review activism is still a contentious issue on Amazon and elsewhere
by Chris Meadows
17 Apr 2017 at 10:47am
We’ve had a lot to say on the subject of one-star reviews over the last few years. Consumers have used them to protest practices they didn’t like, be they windowing the publication of an ebook, applying unfriendly DRM to video games, or even double-dipping on Lord of the Rings DVD releases. Beyond that, organized rating […]

Oh Lord, please don?t let Google Book Search be misunderstood
by Chris Meadows
17 Apr 2017 at 9:13am
Has there ever been an online initiative more misunderstood than Google Book Search? If there has, it doesn’t readily come to mind. The purpose of Google Books has been muddled by its adversaries(and, sometimes, allies) ever since Google first started shoving books into scanners. Even now, a year after the Supreme Court finally closed the […]

Does the resurgence of DRM-using music have implications for ebooks?
by Chris Meadows
14 Apr 2017 at 7:54am
To today’s consumers, convenience is king. That’s about the only conclusion I can take from a recent poston the blog Copyright and Technology interpreting recent RIAA statistics to demonstrate that, where music is concerned, “DRM is back.” It wasn’t so very long ago, in 2009, that iTunes announced it would stop putting DRM on music […]

The new Mystery Science Theater 3000 will not disappoint fans
by Chris Meadows
13 Apr 2017 at 2:07pm
In the not too distant future—that is to say, tonight at 12:01 a.m. Pacific time, 3:01 a.m. Eastern—the crowdfunded new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 finally hits Netflix. As one of the funding contributors, I had early access to the shows and have watched the first three episodes so far. And good news for […]

Was Copyright Register Maria Pallante fired for incompetence?
by Chris Meadows
13 Apr 2017 at 12:34pm
Remember the ouster of former Register of Copyrights Maria Pallante from the copyright office last year, amid concerns it could lead to a less consumer-friendly copyright office? At the time, I believed the reason might have something to do with Pallante’s outspoken efforts to pull the copyright office out from under the oversight of her […]

Review: Rick Riordan?s ?Percy Jackson? books
by Chris Meadows
13 Apr 2017 at 8:30am
Circumstances of my day job have left me with rather more time to read via computer than I had expected, and as a result I’ve gotten more reading done in the last couple of months than I had in the year prior to that. I’ve read through a number of terrific new books, but some […]

Rakuten Kobo snaps up Shelfie book-bundling service
by Chris Meadows
6 Apr 2017 at 4:23pm
Remember when book-bundling service Shelfie shut down in January, and Kobo stepped in tocontinue providing access to Shelfie ebooks until the end of February? At the time, I wondered if that might be a precursor to Kobo snapping up Shelfie as it had snapped up the assets of a number of other defunct ebook store […]

Money-making ideas for writers: ?On the side? can pay off
by Troy Lambert
20 Mar 2017 at 9:29am
A third of my freelance income came from a major client. Then this outfit ran out of money for the program that was paying me. Poof! My related earnings went from dependable to nothing overnight. What todo?Perhaps you shouldlook beyond your usual articles or books and think “on the side.” From taxconsulting to lectures and […]

By Bill Rosenblatt The 2017 ePub Summit in Brussels this month was the venue for the beta launch and first live demos of the Readium LCP DRM technology for ePub-formatted e-books. I?ve discussed aspects of the genesis and design of Readium LCP elsewhere: here is a summary that I presented at last year?s ePub Summit […]

by Chris Meadows
9 Mar 2017 at 12:01am
Here’s one for the “where are they now” file. Bloomberg reports onanonymous sources saying that Radio Shack’s successor, General Wireless Operations, is about ready to file for bankruptcy?again. After Radio Shack filed for bankruptcy in 2015, Sprint snagged 1,400 of the defunct chain’s 4,000 stores and pumped $75 million in financing into it to carry […]
