We've just released our first title for Kindle, at the bargain-tastic price of ninety-nine cents. The hero, Milton Strange, enrols at a summer camp for gifted children, but finds himself plunged into a world of sorcery and sabotage. If that sounds like your sort of thing, paste http://www.amazon.co.uk/Milton-Strange-Astral-Projector-ebook/dp/B00E6XXSSI into your browser...

Not my words - those of Macbeth! I just got back from Kenneth Brannagh's production of the Scottish Play, which was very good. Lots of audience members could be seen desperately fanning their faces to combat the heat ("weary of the sun" indeed!).
"A foreigner... could be forgiven for getting the impression that we have little pride or interest in our children's writers and illustrators... children's books account for nearly one in four of all book sales, when far less than a fortieth of review space in printed papers is dedicated to them."

Early 2013 will also see the publication of Milton Strange and the Astral Projector, by first time author Merlin Mackinnon. Very exciting!
Since our third space adventure is out soon, we decided to celebrate by re-releasing the first two with fancy new covers. We think they're a big improvement.

I've only just heard that Encyclopaedia Britannica is going fully digital. The 2010 edition will be the last print version. That's a real shame for the world of physical books.
