Here are a few stories to read this Monday morning.

  • This post on inheriting copyrights wildly understates the complications. 
  • Famed Spanish thriller author Carmen Mola has been revealed to be a fraud perpetrated by three male Spanish screenwriters. It’s not just a pen name; they created a whole persona, and used that persona even in press interviews. (This is what makes it a fraud.)
  • The Onyx Boox Max Lumi2 Runs Android 11, and is up for pre-order for $880. 
  • KDP Print now supports Japanese
  • On a related note, your Comixology purchases are now available via Kindle apps.
  • “Motherfucker” isn’t just Samuel L Jackson’s signature phrase; it’s also how he overcame his stutter while a college student. It had nothing to do with him getting expelled from college, though.
  • The PineNote open source E-ink tablet is now up for pre-order.  (scroll down)
  • Kris Rusch is right to point out that major publishers are ignoring their backlist, and that it’s costing them money
