Gen Con interview: Mercedes Lackey
by Chris Meadows
6 Aug 2018 at 2:15pm
  One of the featured guests at Gen Con this year was Mercedes Lackey, returning for the second Gen Con in a row after she and her husband Larry Dixon were with Zombie Orpheus Entertainment last year. Unfortunately, Larry Dixon was not able to make it this year after all, due to recovering from a […]

Branching-path narratives come to Gen Con
by Chris Meadows
6 Aug 2018 at 10:35am
Gen Con is best known as a gaming convention, but it has a strong publishing-and-writing component as well in the form of the Gen Con Writers Symposium. But there are other ways games and books intersect—most notably, the venerable “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, and the branching-path narrative genres they spawned. While not thefirst branching-path […]

by Chris Meadows
4 Aug 2018 at 5:36pm
Gen Con is in full swing once more in Indianapolis, and so is one of its lesser-known but still intriguing areas. The Authors’ Avenue, an adjunct to the art show, has several dozen tables manned by authors and publishers of all sorts. I see many of the same people show up at these tables year […]

by Chris Meadows
3 Aug 2018 at 5:15pm
Never let it be said that an ebook lover can’t appreciate a well-made paper book. This morning at Gen Con, I ran into a couple of people with the most fascinating hand-made books. I spoke to Matthew Webb, a Creative Partner with LARP company Jackalope Live Action Studios, about the The Book of Nine Scribes […]

It will continue to be free through the entire Gen Con event, until Monday, August 6th at 3 a.m. Eastern.I want to be able to recommend it to people I meet at the convention without them […]

What could Barnes & Noble learn from Family Video?s continuing success?
by Chris Meadows
31 Jul 2018 at 2:28pm
As Blockbuster Video is down to only one location in the entire United States in this age of digital video, and book and video chain Hastings has also shut its doors, it may come as a surprise that there’s another chain video store, Family Video, that is not only surviving but thriving, still 700 locations […]

Gen Con event listing goes digital-only, saves 130 trees
by Chris Meadows
31 Jul 2018 at 12:22pm
Gen Con is almost upon us again, and this year Gen Con is applying some e-book and Internet media techniques to save paper and, hopefully, enhance the convention-going experience. The most obvious is, of course, the digital program guide. The PDF version of the paper guide that will be printed up and made available at […]

Should we replace public libraries with Amazon Books? Not likely!
by Chris Meadows
22 Jul 2018 at 8:26pm
The problem with ivory towers is that they’re often so far off the ground that it’s hard to see anything going on down there. Locked safely away from the real world, academics are free to dream up crazy ideas—like the notion that we should do away with public libraries in favor of for-profit institutions like […]

Google, fined $5 billion, considers no longer providing Android to device mak...
by Chris Meadows
18 Jul 2018 at 10:57pm
Does the $5 billion fine the European Union just levied on Google for anti-trust violations mean anything for people who read ebooks with Android devices? Should we worry that Android is about to become a lot less useful? As the Magic 8-Ball would say, “Answer hazy, ask again later.” But itdoes shine a fairly harsh […]

by Chris Meadows
17 Jul 2018 at 9:13pm
Macmillan subsidiary SF/fantasy publisher Tor has started delaying sales of its new-release ebooks to library provider Overdrive. The news has just come out through a post on Goodreadsthat I found via a Reddit thread: Overdrive purchase of frontlist ebook titles is now being delayed for four months from date of publication. The original poster on […]

by Chris Meadows
16 Jul 2018 at 7:46pm
Amazon Prime Day is in full swing, and as you might expect, there are a number of good e-reading-related deals involved. Given that there’s almost 30 hours still left in the sale, I’m going to list some of them and hope that folks see some merit in clicking through. Prime Day got off to a […]

Amazon Prime Day officially begins at 3 p.m. Eastern Time on Monday, July 16, and lasts for 36 hours—through 3 a.m. Eastern Time, Wednesday, July 18. While Amazon’s been kicking out various special offers for the last week, the big ones are probably reserved for that 36-hour period. Among others, I’ve heard that the new, […]

Nook users should probably jump ship soon
by Chris Meadows
15 Jul 2018 at 1:51pm
Is there anyone out there who still uses Barnes & Noble’s Nook store as their primary source of ebooks? Has the knowledge that Barnes & Noble’s end is probably approaching made any difference in how you deal with ebook purchases? Have you considered switching stores, and if so, to which one? I used to buy […]

Advice about annoying, always-active ?Alexa Accessories?
by Chris Meadows
10 Jul 2018 at 7:45am
This morning, I found that my Fire HD 8 had downloaded its latest OS patch, to FireOS version—the one that brings with it the new “Show Mode” that you can use if the tablet is plugged in. But one other thing it brought with it was an “Alexa Accessories” notification icon that doesn’t do […]
