"The fact that nothing ever needs to be out of print is, as far as I’m
concerned, a big plus to digital publishing. It means that in theory
everything ever written can be easily available. I also think that
genres such as the western can reach a bigger audience as eBooks. I
don’t really think there is a downside other to eBooks themselves since
traditional books should be able to co-exist with this new technology.
The ease of self publishing means that at the moment there is a lot of
swill about and that could be seen as a downside, but quality will out
and in time the bad writing will simply vanish. So long live the eBook."
