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.

Paul and I hope other publishers will be interested in joining the discussions here at And we’ll have more to say about these columns in the weeks ahead.
