Description: Provocative, informative and insightful essays by editor and writer Eric Flint on ebooks, publishing, storytelling, and the future of fiction

Summary: Reflections on the state of the art from a master who has his finger to the wind and his nose to the grindstone. Eric Flint is best known for his multiple best selling Ring of Fire alternate history series. He also served as editor of the online magazine Jim Baen's Universe, and as curator of the Baen Free Library, a pioneering ebook initiative.

Excerpt: Free libraries, electronic no less than paper ones, have always been the sanctuary for society's marginalized people. For most of us, the marginalization was a temporary economic phenomenon which we outgrew as our income reached normal adult levels. But for some of us, that marginal position will remain the lot of a lifetime. Not the least of the reasons that I despise the arguments of the tighten the laws! crowd is that I know exactly who the victims of their policies will be in the real world. It won't be some pirate, twirling his mustachioes. Pirates will always figure out a way to steal. It will be Jimmy and Kris and people like them. Those people have a hard enough life as it is, without my joining the crowd that wants to drop another stone on their backs. If I can't make a living as a writer by the quality of my writing outweighing any losses I might suffer from theft -- without trampling all over blind and crippled people in order to stop the theft -- I've got no damn business being a writer in the first place. I've still got my tool box, and I haven't forgotten how to be a machinist. Eric Flint
