    It’s too bad they didn’t interview Scott Sigler! Though I guess he doesn’t release the written version for free necessarily, just the audio version.

    Baen Books has the first book or two in a SF/fantasy series as free ebooks, something that’s made me go out and buy more than a few sequels. We still haven’t found a good model yet to turn the concept into reliable money, but I think it should be something along the line of Netflix. I’d gladly pay $20/mo for comics/graphic novels or for unlimited indie ebooks. Put them in a streaming program and I won’t have to haul two hundred pounds of books every time I move.
