The Promise of Epub

20 01 2009

Many years ago when I started there was a great  hope that literature, especially new work would find its place in the electronic media, that people would read novels, poetry etc on electronic devices. With that in mind I structured much of my work so that it could be read and enjoyed in small portions. Many people including myself cannot read on any moving transit so I thought that the smaller portions might help. And I thought that it nicely paralleled the rhythms of travel. Well, very little has happened in the meantime. Those e-devices that were supposed to replace books never arrived. Perhaps the new telephones, Blackberrys and such will perform this task. In my darkest moments I think that reading itself will become a medium for the transportation of information and cease to be an opportunity for pleasure.
