Lawrence Watt-Evans on the viability of the paperback

In this post and the posts that follow (just click on the "Next" button after you read each message, lwe talks about the history of the paperback distribution system, how it has changed and collapsed and how it might look into the future. He thinks it's becoming much more like the comic book industry, where new writers break in through the small presses, and he thinks this is happening because of the distribution system.

New sf/f writers used to break in with mmpb originals, but apparently that isn't happening anymore.
