URLs in Bibliography Entries

Cory Doctorow's "Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom" (which I just added to the Oort-Cloud Bibliography), is a good example of the utility of the "URL" field in bibliography entries.

In this case, it links over to the online location of the work.

Eric Flint on science fiction and electronic publishing

We plan to make a serious contribution to the debate about the future of science fiction and electronic publishing, but we aren’t the first to consider what may lie ahead, and we want to give credit to those who have already weighed in on some of the issues.

Eric Flint wrote a series of thought-provoking columns while he was the editor of Jim Baen’s Universe, and they shed light on at least one publisher’s perspective on electronic publishing, copyright, fair use, and digital rights management.

Social Publishing

I am always looking for connections and lately I have begun to see what I think is a promising trend in the publishing world that may just transform the industry for good.
