Yeah, this is an editorial, but I think the subject matter is one worth discussing.

I'm always up for discussing a Judas Priest song!

We're all change averse to some extent--it's probably an evolutionary trait--but I'm with you that ultimately electronic media has to flourish.

It makes sense economically and evironmentally. I suspect eventually 'print runs' will be minimal and will be backed up by print-on-demand, which itself will lose its 'self published' stigma and become the norm (and lower in price!). And behind all that, growing all the time, will be the likes of Kindle and whatnot.

One benefit to the author is that titles need never go 'out-of-print'.

I'm totally on board with the POD concept. ST would be very different without it. I'm just not into the e-book concept. I'm old and crotchety like that. Smile

Shock Totem wouldn't be without it.

A lot of publications use POD, though some don't want to admit it. There's still a stigma attached to it and people are afraid to associate themselves with it. But some day e-books will be the norm with a POD option for those who still dig the physical version.

Speaking of ebooks...when's the Kindle version of ST coming out?

Ugh...soon. I'm currently working my way through the entire thing. Looks like I wasn't so organized with issue #1. The final book block was missing things, still had mistakes that were eventually fixed, and so on. So that was a bit of a roadblock that I didn't expect.

So right I'm just trying to go back through everything and organize it. Takes time, though.

Takes time, but you do things right. That's what counts.

By the way, they mentioned Kindles in that ancient comic, "Mary Worth". I nearly died.

What? It's perfectly valid use for a kindle. You could also prop up a table with one leg shorter than the others.
