I just bought Infectious Opportunity, by James Comtois for my Kindle. Martin Denton has also entered the eBook market, putting one of his many anthologies in the format.
Right now, as far as I know, neither of the publishers that carry my work offer eBooks. Curious what you all think of the prospect. It seems like it would be extremely useful for play publishers, but it's also a very new market, and perhaps there are challenges to the licensing model that works with this format.
Would you buy a play for the Kindle? Are you just basically opposed to the format? Do you see reasons why this isn't going to work for the stage? Or do you think it's just inevitable that digital publishing comes to Drama?
