Fictionwise.com Supports hiebook Reading Device and Format
First North American ePublisher to offer eBooks for the 3rd generation eBook device.

October 12, 2001 - Chatham, NJ - Fictionwise.com announced today that its inventory of over 1,000 high-quality and award-winning eBooks are now available for the new hiebook reading device. Fictionwise is the first ePublisher in North America to offer its catalog of eBooks in the hiebook format.

“One of our stated goals at Fictionwise is to support the major eBook formats,” said Scott Pendergrast, Fictionwise co-publisher. “We believe the hiebook will have a significant impact on the eBook industry. It’s a true third-generation eBook reader that is priced right and has the full-fledged PDA and multimedia capabilities that people are demanding.”

Registration at Fictionwise (http://www.fictionwise.com) is free. When a Fictionwise member purchases an eBook, it is stored in the member’s “Bookshelf,” where it can be downloaded as needed in any of its supported formats. Fictionwise now supports Palm Doc (for Palm, Visor and Win CE), Adobe Acrobat, Rocket/REB1100, Microsoft Reader (Pocket PC and PCs), Franklin eBookMan, and now the hiebook (hiebook device and PC).

Curtis describes Fictionwise.com as "the most technically advanced eBook website I know of. Although our books are distributed by numerous online retailers, Fictionwise's skills in reaching fans and other consumers are peerless. The technology behind the Fictionwise website, from their micropay system to the numerous eBook formats they support, makes them a clear leader."

Scott Pendergrast, co-publisher of Fictionwise, commented, "Our members have been asking for more variety, more authors, more categories of both fiction and nonfiction. E-reads owns a killer list of titles that fits right in with that demand. This relationship will benefit customers and authors alike, as well as both of our companies. It will allow e-reads to focus on content acquisition and Fictionwise to focus on keeping our technology and delivery systems cutting-edge."

eBookAd (http://www.eBookAd.com) is also distributing a desktop version of the hiebook software, which allows users to read hiebook formatted eBooks on either their personal computer or their hiebook device.

“Fictionwise has certainly established themselves as a proven leader in the ePublishing industry,” said eBookAd.com Executive Vice President Dustin Revin. “Having Fictionwise’s titles available in conjunction with the launch of hiebook adds immeasurable value to our product. We are very pleased to be able to offer such high caliber content to our customers.”

Fictionwise.com focuses on selling award-winning and high quality eBooks by top authors. The company also distributes eBooks by other high-quality publishers. It is believed that the Fictionwise.com website has the largest eBook collection of major award-winning and -nominated science fiction and fantasy stories on the Internet. Fictionwise authors include Isaac Asimov, Larry Niven, Harlan Ellison, Mike Resnick, Robert Silverberg, Nancy Kress, Ursula K. Le Guin, Jack Williamson, Pamela Sargent, Kate Wilhelm, and many others.

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, the website adds additional eBooks from established professional authors in the science fiction, fantasy, dark fantasy, mystery, horror, contemporary, and humor genres as well as nonfiction titles in business, biography, true adventure, and education.
