mobile sci-fi

According to www.bookbrunch.co.uk, the digital sequel to the defunct Publishing News, Pan Macmillan has concluded a deal with Lexcycle, the maker of "the highest rated electronic book reader for the iPhone", which will see a range of titles made available for download by users of Lexcycle's Stanza ebook reader for the Apple iPhone and the iPod touch.

Stanza users will have access to free excerpts from selected bestsellers, with more titles coming on stream during the course of the next 12 months. Sara Lloyd, Digital Director of Pan Mac, said that she and her colleagues had been keeping a close eye on App Store, noting that Lexcycle's Stanza "emerged very quickly as a clear leader in its category. We immediately made contact to ask about developing a strategic partnership to bring our ebooks to readers through this new channel."
