It's a brave new gateway

Here’s another example of how some publishers are adapting to the rise of ebooks. Recently, Gollancz announced it was supporting the online Encyclopedia of Science Fiction. Now the publisher has announced the creation of SF Gateway, which will make available out-of-print sci-fi and fantasy classics in ebook form. So they’re providing an information service and piggybacking a retail service onto that. The reading community is happy and the publisher is happy — and the writers are happy. Everyone’s happy!

Makes you wonder what would happen if some enterprising publisher took the same approach to, say, Canadian literature. There’s gold in them thar abandoned classics.
