  • e-Words is a column canvassing current literary news about digital publishing.
  • Only relevant Australian literary material individually indexed.
  • 'The House of Books (Allen & Unwin) aims to bring Australia's cultural and literary heritage to a broad audience by creating affordable print and ebook editions of the nation's most significant and enduring writers and their work. The fiction, non-fiction, plays and poetry of generations of Australian writers published before the advent of ebooks will now be available to new readers, alongside a selection of more recently published books that had fallen out of circulation.

    The House of Books is an eloquent collection of Australia's finest literary achievements, and the digital revolution is helping bring us all closer to the books and writers of Australia's literary tradition. From June 2012, the House of Books will make accessible a library of authors and their books at affordable prices to a whole new readership. Some books have long been out of print, some have recently slipped into oblivion but with new ebooks released every month for the remainder of 2012 (and beyond) the House of Books should be the first stop for all readers of Australian fiction and non-fiction. Books will be available simultaneously as ebooks and print editions (using POD - print on demand technology).' Source: www.allenandunwin.com/ (Sighted 22/05/2012).

  • 'Penguin Shorts are designed to fill a gap. Written by some of today's best and most exciting writers, to be read over a long commute or a short journey, in your lunch hour or between dinner and bedtime, these ebooks provide a short escape into a fictional world or act as a primer in a particular field or provide a new angle on an old subject. They are short, original and affordable - and only available in a digital format. Shorts colours are inspired by the original Penguin Livery: Orange - Fiction, Dark blue - Memoir, Yellow - History, Pink - Cookery and Turquoise - Contemporary nonfiction.'
