for now we can at least definitely encourage authors writing under a CC licence to distribute their work here (unless, as is the case for Spacejock Hal, they need to be able to reference the download count, and therefore must keep the distribution local on their own site).
Well it could go to mobileread (same way etsy and ebay take a cut), but I don't know how that works.
I don't think it necessarily needs to be edited either. I dunno, just tossing the idea out there.
