iClassics Literature Resurrects Enhanced Interactive eBooks

iClassics Literature Resurrects Enhanced Interactive eBooks | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
It didn’t take long for the digital reading revolution to evolve to enhanced, interactive ebooks. These fully immersive reading experiences were at once hailed as the bells-and-whistles answer to getting high-interest results from even the most reluctant of readers. Plenty of startups came and went under the model of incorporating video, audio, sound effects, moving graphics, and more into a simple book, but many of those interactive experiences failed to lure readers away from the quiet simplicity of letting their imaginations fill in the multimedia blanks.

The Big Titles U.S. Agencies Will be Selling at the 2016 Frankfurt Book Fair

The Big Titles U.S. Agencies Will be Selling at the 2016 Frankfurt Book Fair | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
One of the hottest fiction titles at Baror is Cory Doctorow’s novel Walkaway (Tor, Apr. 2017), which the shingle bills as “an epic tale of revolution, love, post-scarcity, and the end of death.” The sci-fi thriller follows a man who lives through the breakdown of society as he knows it. Another fiction biggie for the agency is Omega Canyon by Dan Simmons (Little, Brown, Mar. 2017). This work of historical fiction follows two Viennese brothers who flee Europe on the eve of World War II—one, a physicist, goes to work on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos, while the other becomes a commando in England’s Special Operations Executive program. Newcomer Megan Bannen, a librarian by trade, retells an epic poem from ancient Persia in her debut, The Nameless Prince (HC/Balzer + Bray, fall 2018). Another debut, this one nonfiction, is Sarah Robb O’Hagan’s Extreme You: Step Up. Stand Out. Kick Ass. Repeat. (HarperBusiness, Apr. 2017). The former president of Gatorade and Equinox, O’Hagan is a fitness guru, and her book lays out an intense training program.
