December 1, 2013 | 5:15 pm

GEDC1342 Here is another interview from this year’s GenCon, in which I spoke briefly with a number of self-published or independently-published authors in the authors’ alley.

The Byook is a unique combination of graphic novel, movie and game
February 4, 2013 | 8:05 pm

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like I've been hearing about more and more companies lately—some of them new, and some that have been around for awhile—that are putting together large and (presumably) expensive teams of designers and developers to create digitally-enhanced "electronic reading experiences," as they're often called. The latest such organization I've heard of is Byook, a French company that was founded in 2009 by three friends who worked in the video game and digital entertainment industries, and they refer to their product as "a new reading experience." That might be a bit of a stretch, given the...

underground_thumb[1] Mike Masnick on Techdirt had a longer article yesterday about the comic book piracy incident I mentioned the other day, where artist Steve Lieber found that his entire graphic novel Underground had been scanned and posted to a 4chan web forum.

When Lieber was notified his book had been pirated, he assumed he’d just find a link to a zip file somewhere. Instead, he found that it had been posted page by page. ...

October 22, 2010 | 7:15 am

underground It turns out that e-piracy is not always bad for creators. Comic book artist Steve Lieber learned that his graphic novel Underground had been scanned and posted in its entirety to 4chan. But rather than lawyer up, Lieber joined the discussion, talking about the experience of writing it and giving at least tacit approval to the reposting: As for putting all the pages up here. What can I say? I get that this is how things go, and I'm trying to live in the same decade as everyone else. If nothing else, I'm flattered someone...

One of the stated goals of the project is to bring the Bible to kids and teens who spend a lot of time using their electronic...
