Interesting article: Yes, I realize this was written over three years ago, but that suggests to me that the transition has progressed even further since that time. Once upon a time, the only venues for full-length fiction were the Big New York Publishing Houses or the - gasp! - vanity publishers. Now there's a third option which, it seems to me, means more opportunities for writers, and in time a wider variety of choices for readers. IMO, a Very Good Thing.
