Fictionwise.com Supports Franklin eBookMan
Dramatically increases number of available contemporary titles for new eBook device.

February 27, 2001 - Chatham, NJ - Fictionwise.com announced today that its entire inventory of high-quality, fiction eBooks is now available for the new Franklin eBookMan device.

Fictionwise (http://www.fictionwise.com) is among the first companies to release contemporary eBooks by top authors for the eBookMan's proprietary eBook format. Franklin Electronic Publishing currently has about 100 contemporary titles in this format, and several thousand public domain titles whose copyrights have expired. This move by Fictionwise adds nearly 500 additional titles by contemporary authors, with 30 to 40 new titles launched every month. Many of the Fictionwise titles have won or been nominated for major literary and fan awards.

"At Fictionwise.com, we constantly review trends in the eBook industry, and we believe that in the coming months the Franklin eBookMan will be a major market for our titles," commented Stephen Pendergrast, co-publisher at Fictionwise.com. "It features a larger screen area than most PDAs, enhancing the reading experience, and also has multimedia capabilities. In addition, the unit lists at an attractive price-point. We’re proud to be in the forefront of making titles available for the Franklin eBookMan."

eBookMan owners can register at Fictionwise.com for free, download several free eBooks, and purchase titles which are stored on their "bookshelf." Fictionwise eBooks can be read on the eBookMan’s "Franklin Reader" software application.

Fictionwise.com focuses on selling award-winning and high quality fiction eBooks by top authors in multiple formats (Adobe Acrobat, Rocket/REB 1100, Palm Doc, Microsoft Reader, and now the Franklin eBookMan). Fictionwise has hundreds of inexpensive titles from leading contemporary fiction authors, including: Harlan Ellison, Robert Silverberg, Nancy Kress, Larry Niven, Damon Knight, Mike Resnick, Michael Swanwick, James Patrick Kelly, Pamela Sargent, Kage Baker, Tom Purdom, and Kate Wilhelm, amongst others. In most cases, Fictionwise.com has the largest short fiction eBook collections available for its authors, and it is believed the website features the largest eBook collection of major award-winning and nominated stories on the web.

Fictionwise.com includes many innovative features, such as the ability for readers to pay either via credit card or a proprietary "micropay" account, which allows Fictionwise users to avoid paying minimum credit transaction fees imposed by credit processing agents.

Every week, Fictionwise.com adds additional stories from established professional authors in the science fiction, fantasy, dark fantasy, mystery, horror, contemporary, and humor genres.
