People with long memories (and big brains) will remember an SF fanzine called 'Tripe Pickers Journal', published intermittently in the 1970s. What a crazy, hazy summer that was. The summer of love.
Or was that 1990? (Meanwhile, in 2007, this author decided publishing was over, dead. People are just keeping up.)

Welcome to the New Pages
Welcome to 'Publishing is Dead', a New Wave blogging web site devoted to the proposition that Traditional Publishing is in the process of being killed off by the Internet. Discuss!
Whether you're an author, a reader, or an entrepreneur, our feeling is that you will benefit from New Technology. The stuffy old duffers in dusty old offices are on their way out. It's New Wave now. It's Internet Publishing. That's the way of the future.
Let's talk about it.
This web site is brought to you by magic.
After all, it's a published article. Let's face it - most authors don't get published. They languish, they faint, they suffer. They send off their parcels, strong in hope, girded in faith. Year after year.
We're here to tell you there is another way. It's called Internet Publishing. And it doesn't involve a slap in the face.
Think of this as a Forum, to contribute and discuss. Let us know what you think. But above all - move forward. New Wave publishing is on the up. It's the way of the future.
This web site is here to say - Goodbye Traditional Publishing.
(It's dead. Did we mention that?)
Sure, some of the people joining the discussion are writers. Some have been published (by Traditional Publishers). Some are still hoping for that honour. Some have given up, along the way. Some have resolved to use Internet Publishing, only. That's what the Forum is all about!
The guy with the face (above) is Mike Scantlebury,
(creator of 'Scanti-Noir').
