Rosetta seems to control a lot of the available 'new' content out there. They'd be the ones who'd have to fix their stuff ....

I don't know where they get their electronic versions.

For books that no longer have authors (like the Robert E. Howard stuff I am reading now), I would assume that they had someone scan it in. Many of the errors that I see can best be described as OCR errors (i.e. "U" instead of an "LI").

Submission info on Fictionwise's site suggests that they want books sent to them in "ready-to-convert" RTF files, which they do not edit or check... they expect that to be taken care of by the author before submittal.

(I was looking into submitting my work to them, but they do not seem to want books that have not already been printed. I'm considering arguing the point with them...)

Steve! Forgive my curiosity but I'd like to know what you read or how much you can read in a week, and if it can affect your writing in a way or an other? I find the dance of words fascinating and I'd love to write but my grammar is not very good. Do you find yourself sometimes going back to basics? I promise that when I get the Sony reader, if it legally gets to Canada that is, I'll read your books...

On an other note...I've finished the second in the Cyteen saga and I'm halfway in the third, it's getting harder to put it down and go to sleep. C J Cherryh is a fantastic and very intelligent writer. Her mastery of social relations and human psyche is uncanny and she gets everything well connected to her stories. It is funny how her story style is called scifi when everything she tells could pretty well be in this world. I srongly recommend her.

Just started reading Shaman's Crossing by Robin Hobb, first book of the Soldier Son Trilogy. It's my first purchase from Sony Connect. Reviews on Amazon don't look too bright, but I am giving Hobb a chance, because she is a master for deft description and characterizations.
