My colleague, James Long, writes on The Digitalist:
In parallel with the publication of the paperback, Clive James’s ‘intellectual autobiography’, Cultural Amnesia, is also being published as the first in our series of ‘special edition’ eBooks, featuring extra material not available in the print version and including a specially written foreword by Clive James.
We’re offering this eBook DRM-free; this is a deliberate choice on the part of both Pan Macmillan and Clive James. What we hope is that this will be a positive experience for our readers as well as contributing to the growing body of evidence that DRM-free is the way forward for digital publishing.
I’m told that this is the first DRM-free ebook from a mainstream author and major publisher in the UK. Yeah! 🙂
The Picador blog has more from the author himself.
