As some of you will know by now, it sometimes takes me until midweek to catch up with the weekend papers. This is Robert McCrum ending his column in The Guardian's Saturday REVIEW:
I've just had my first experience of e-publishing, courtesy of Guardian books. In contrast to all my previous publications, it was clean, fast and virtual. As recently as August, we made three separate selections of my Observer journalism. I wrote three short introductions. Speedy formatting followed. There were no galleys, no delays, no bus rides to the typesetter. A week ago On Writing, On Reading and On Authors were launched, at £2.99 apiece. I'm delighted to have joined the e-generation, a new world and a brave one.
