The E-Book Has Landed
AStar in the Face of the Sky is now an e-book. Resolving (slowly) to an electronic book retailer near you.
Turns out there’s a lot more to converting a print book to an e-book than simply pushing a few buttons. Lots of behind the scenes business related to formatting and margins and the fact that some readers allow you to do things such as “stretch” the screen and change fonts and font size. Also, as it happens, we’re still in the “VHS vs Betamax” days of electronic books. Different readers require different conversion formats.
This is already more than you or I needed or wanted to know about this subject. For those of you who have been waiting, the kindle edition is up and other formats will appear over the next few hours/days. Of course, you can’t sign an ebook, but I would be happy to deface your Nook with my Sharpie.
