The changing face of book publishing

I'm dying to write about the trip to Winter Institute in Louisville and will as soon as I have more time but it was really a marvelous thing to be a small part of. More later and with photos, too.

Until I find time, I thought I'd pass on this article from the New York Times that has people scratching their heads and giving them pause: seems people
in Japan are writing novels on their cell phones(!) and some of those are becoming traditional bestsellers. How bizarre, how bizarre, as the song goes.


Would you want to read a novel on your cell?
I can't imagine this is the way the next Hemingway will be discovered but it shows how new technologies are being embraced and applied. Scary but I doubt it's going to go away any time soon.
