Qvadis, Fictionwise to Team on Palm eBooks

Toronto, ON and Chatham, NJ - 14 March 2001 - Qvadis, the premier Palm e-publishing solutions provider, and Fictionwise.com, a leading digital publisher embodying excellence in ebooks, today announced a range of joint initiatives aimed at strengthening their respective market positions in the burgeoning Palm eBook industry.

Qvadis produces the popular and award-winning Express Reader line of authoring tools and etext viewers for Palm-powered handhelds. Fictionwise is a market leader in short fiction and novels by award-winning and celebrated science fiction and fantasy authors, which it publishes in a number of electronic formats including for Palm-compatible handhelds.

"We're very excited to be working with Fictionwise," said Sam Peralta, CEO of Qvadis. "Our relationship links two companies with complementary strengths - Qvadis in eBook reader software and Fictionwise in quality eBook content - and a common vision, to help build the Palm eBook community."

The initiatives will see Fictionwise novel and short story samplers bundled in select Qvadis eBook reader applications, and Fictionwise titles for sale on the Qvadis website, which already offers nearly 4500 free etexts for Palm-powered handhelds. In addition, Qvadis Express Reader becomes Fictionwise's recommended Palm eBook viewer for its community of reading enthusiasts.

"Fictionwise.com is committed to providing high quality content for all major eBook platforms," commented Stephen Pendergrast, co-publisher at Fictionwise.com. "Our relationship with Qvadis will further solidify our position as a leading publisher of ebooks in Palm format."

"Many of our customers are Palm users who have discovered a passion for great stories, and they are reading them everywhere - during lunch breaks, in checkout lines, riding the train home from work - anywhere there's the opportunity to enjoy a great story," said Scott Pendergrast, co-publisher at Fictionwise.com. "We see our teaming with Qvadis as helping to bring that passion to a wider audience of Palm users."

Fictionwise.com offerings include award-winning and high quality fiction ebooks by leading contemporary authors, including Harlan Ellison, Robert Silverberg, Nancy Kress, Larry Niven, Damon Knight, Mike Resnick, Michael Swanwick, Gregory Benford, James Patrick Kelly, Pamela Sargent, Kage Baker, Tom Purdom, and Kate Wilhelm, among others. It is believed that Fictionwise.com has the largest eBook collection of major award-winning and nominated stories on the web.

The first integrated PC/Palm eBook publisher and viewer, Qvadis Express Reader has quickly gained in popularity and critical acclaim since its release for its simple and intuitive, yet powerful, design. Among other accolades, Express Reader has been featured as a Hot Product at Yahoo! Mobile, and garnered a five-star and Reviewers' Pick rating on ZDNet. In addition to Express Reader, the Qvadis website offers an extensive free etext library, the Web's most complete links to Palm eBook archives, Palm and Net device news, as well as the popular eBook-of-the-Month feature.
