I know that many of you are not regular readers of the Pegasus Pulp blog, which is more focussed on publishing related subjects. So I’d like to point you to two recent posts about the German publishing world over on the Pegasus Pulp blog.
The first post talks about the German e-book market and the recent news that the market share of Tolino, an e-reader developed and marketed by an alliance of several German booksellers, has surpassed that of Amazon’s Kindle.
The second post tackles the very German publishing phenomenon of the “Romanheft”, novella-length stories published in standalone digest-sized pulp magazines, and draws some parallels to e-book indie publishing. I’ve also included a couple of links discussing the digital strategies of “Romanheft” publishers.
