The publishing industry is going through a change as great as the shift to the printing press . Not surprisingly, they are getting some things wrong , getting some things right, and even the things that they are getting right, they are getting right slowly.
"Publishers" aren't one monolithic lump either. Baen's is a niche publisher much admired for getting things right. BeWrite publishers is another.
Its likely that as things evolve, some publishers may vanish altogether and firms that aren't even in the publishing business now may grow to dominate the industry. Its going to be a bumpy ride.
