Faber’s move into POD leads to great discussion

Eoin Purcell

It is going on over at Fidra Books
Vanessa posted a rather honest assessment of Faber’s POD move the other day:

Perhaps I’m being wary for no reason. Perhaps they will just reissue the really obscure titles that don’t have a potentially wide readership. Perhaps they will point out to copyright holders that other publishing houses exist that may do a better job in certain circumstances.

As ever some of the best stuff is in the comments but the whole post is fascinating casting light on an area of publishing that is growing more competitive as technology allows smaller houses compete with larger ones. It is also the area that seems to be driving concern over orphan works.

Had a fun day, that included some beach walking,

PS This is post 501. I should really have done something to celebrate!
