Curtas: Franz Kafka's A Country Doctor


A short animation from academy award nominee Koji Yamamura based on famed Jewish-Czech writer Franz Kafka's short prose, "A Country Doctor" from 1919.
A hapless country doctor describes with breathless urgency a night-time summons to attend a young patient. Events soon take on a surreal aspect as "unearthly horses" transport him instantaneously to the bedside. The doctor, preoccupied with personal distractions and grievances against those he is employed to care for, fails to find what is revealed to be a vile, fatal wound. He is humiliated by the villagers who are "always expecting the impossible from the doctor," and doomed to an endless return trip, losing everything.

Colecção Argonauta



A par com a colecção Vampiro, a Argonauta marcou várias gerações de leitores em Portugal. Mesmo os mais jovens decerto se depararam com alguns livros da colecção em alfarrabistas ou feiras do livro. Dada a sua importância na divulgação de um género tantas vezes depreciado, é com prazer que venho divulgar o trabalho que o João Vagos tem vindo a efectuar de modo a que a Argonauta não seja votada ao esquecimento.
Esse trabalho passou, inicialmente, pela gravação de uma série de vídeos (apresentados abaixo) onde este apresenta os mais de 500 livros que constituem a Argonauta; de especial interesse para coleccionadores, mas também para os amantes da ficção científica em geral. Para além dos vídeos, o João Vagos mantém também um blog onde publicou as capas de todos os volumes. Nos últimos tempos tem vindo a actualizar cada entrada com informação adicional, como resumos, prefácios, introduções e até a listagem de adaptações cinematográficas.

Rubrica semanal de notícias e artigos relacionados com a edição de livros digitais.

Amazon is buying Liquavista. Or at the very least they are buying part of the company (making a major investment) and plan to use Liquavista’s screen in the next Kindle.Samsung bought Liquavista in early 2011, and quickly renamed the company Liquavista/SNRC (Samsung Netherlands Research Center). They’ve been funding research at Liquavista for the past couple years but so far as I know they have not actually released a device which used a Liquavista screen. This tech is going to have the same color qualities as LCDs while also being much more energy-efficient. It’s been under development for 10 years now and was supposed to enter mass production in 2010, 2011, and this year (it keeps getting pushed back).
A report released by Scholastic early in 2013 carries an ostensibly encouraging report that children between 6 and 17 are turning in greater numbers to e-books. Forty-six percent of the children polled said they had read at least one e-book, twice the number of those surveyed in 2010. In particular, boys, who “traditionally lag behind girls in reading” in the words of Leslie Kaufman of the New York Times, were showing greater attachment to the medium.
Brasília – O Programa Nacional do Livro Didático (PNLD) abre hoje (21) o período para inscrições de obras destinadas a alunos e professores do ensino médio da rede pública para o ano letivo de 2015. A partir de agora, as editoras também poderão inscrever livros digitais – cujo acesso pode ser feito em computadores ou em tablets.
A versão digital deve vir acompanhada do livro impresso, ter o mesmo conteúdo e incluir conteúdos educacionais digitais como vídeos, animações, simuladores, imagens e jogos para auxiliar na aprendizagem. Continua permitida a apresentação de obras somente na versão impressa para viabilizar a participação das editoras que ainda não dominam as novas tecnologias.
The literary website the Millions is getting into the e-book business: Starting Tuesday, it will publish e-books that are available on Amazon.com, in Apple's iBookstore and at Barnes & Noble. While its website is about books, authors and publishing, its e-books will move into other realms.The Millions' debut is "Epic Fail: Bad Art, Viral Fame and the History of the Worst Thing Ever" by Mark O'Connell. It's a long essay that begins with the botched Jesus fresco repair that looked like a monkey, moves to Susan Sontag's "On Camp" and goes on from there.
Perhaps the most groundbreaking aspect of “Library Services in the Digital Age,” the report released today by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project is how non-groundbreaking its findings are.Based on “a survey of 2,252 Americans ages 16 and above” conducted between October 15 and November 10 of last year, the Pew report assures us that, even in the digital age, libraries continue to serve a variety of functions, with nearly 60% of respondents having had some kind of interaction with a library in the last 12 months, and 91% saying that “public libraries are important to their communities.”
One of the most underappreciated realities of the book business is how hard it is for a retailer to manage an inventory of trade books.This is an existential problem for a bookstore. A bookstore’s inventory is its biggest investment. The performance of inventory — how many times it “turns” in a year and how successfully the store manages to buy what it needs without wasting investment (tying up cash) and incurring margin-destroying revenueless-costs (return freight, probably added to inbound freight, plus wasted labor shelving, removing, packing, and shipping) — is, by far, the single biggest determinant of whether a store succeeds commercially or fails.
Kobo has appointed former Apple sales director Jean-Marc Dupuis to oversee its European expansion, which is a “top priority” for the company.Kobo said Dupuis was “instrumental” in Apple doubling its revenue in Europe and has now hired him as its new managing director for EMEA. He will be based in Paris.
At the Digital Book World conference, held in New York last week, one could hardly pass muster by holding up a stack of pages bound together. The crowd’s sensibility was more conceptual; the word that filled the air was “content.” This was a fairground for companies like Innodata, DigiServ, Biztegra, and Datamatics, with booths snaking through the hallways of the Hilton Hotel. They passed out business cards and flowcharts, decked out with spritely taglines: “Unleash your inner book ~ just $99.” In a conference room, Linda Holliday, the C.E.O. of a digital publishing company called Semi-Linear, leaned against a presenter’s table, having just wrapped up a panel discussion on “Making Content Searchable, Findable, and Shareable.” She spoke in an excited stream. “A book is an amount of knowledge that I feel good about finishing,” she told me. “A book is a clump of knowledge that goes together.”
As magazines make the transition from print to pixels, some publishers are using the move as an opportunity to jack up their prices - in some cases, to more than they were charging for print editions. And that's for tablet versions that are too often crappy afterthoughts.
To be fair, magazines are contending with legitimate financial concerns. Their advertising revenue has been declining and the historically discounted subscription rates they've charged for print delivery just aren't enough to pay the freight. To cope, many publishers are asking readers to chip in more - on digital versions as well as print editions.There are some problems with driving up prices too much, though.
The UK team encoded a scholarly paper, a photo, Shakespeare's sonnets and a portion of Martin Luther King's I Have A Dream speech in artificially produced segments of the "life molecule".The information was then read back out with 100% accuracy.It is possible to store huge volumes of data in DNA for thousands of years, the researchers write in Nature magazine.They acknowledge that the costs involved in synthesizing the molecule in the lab make this type of information storage "breathtakingly expensive" at the moment, but argue that newer, faster technologies will soon make it much more affordable, especially for long-term archiving.
Stephen King has never been afraid of trying new ways to sell content to readers. He was one of the first mainstream authors to publish a book online (the marginally unsuccessful The Plant in 2000), one of the first to offer a Kindle Exclusive ebook (UR in 2009), and last year he even decided to try piracy as a promotional tool.Today Amazon announced that Mr King has written and released a Kindle Single. Guns is a 22 page long essay which sums up the author’s views on firearms and gun violence in the US. “I think the issue of an America awash in guns is one every citizen has to think about,” said King. “If this helps provoke constructive debate, I’ve done my job. Once I finished writing ‘Guns’ I wanted it published quickly, and Kindle Singles provided an excellent fit.”

Blimunda n.º 8


O primeiro número da Blimunda neste ano de 2013 centra-se nos universos da BD e do jornalismo, meios aparentemente distantes mas cada vez mais cruzados. Centrando-se em obras de Joe Sacco, Aleksandar Zograf, Jean Philippe Stassen ou Ricardo Cabral, Sara Figueiredo Costa procura apontar caminhos para novas expressões de realidades mais próximas ou mais distantes.
Na secção infantil e juvenil, Andreia Brites recorda Manuel António Pina e fala do tempo e de gatos, no mês que é o deles, visitando a coleção Gato Letrado, da editora brasileira Pulo do Gato, e quatro títulos da portuguesa Planeta Tangerina. A acompanhar os textos, as fotografias de Manuel António Pina e dos seus gatos, de autoria de Luísa Ferreira.
A terminar, a Saramaguiana volta atrás trinta anos para celebrar o trabalho do encenador Joaquim Benite, desaparecido no último mês do ano que há pouco terminou. É o "construtor de teatro", o construtor de vida que aqui se homenageia, recordando as suas encenações de textos de José Saramago. Talvez a melhor forma de mostrar que o seu trabalho, o seu legado continua vivo na cidade de Almada, em todos os palcos e, também, nas páginas da Blimunda.
Por fim, um agradecimento a Luísa Ferreira e à Companhia de Teatro de Almada, pela disponibilidade e amizade.

Leituras Digitais (13 a 19 de Janeiro)



Rubrica semanal de notícias e artigos relacionados com a edição de livros digitais.

Virtual kiosks are no longer theoretical. According to a report in L’Atelier, EBay recently created a couple over the recent holidays dedicated to a variety of products and services. “The online auction and sales platform provider recently opened pop-up stores in London and Berlin, where customers were able to make purchases using smartphones and also obtain advice and training on how to sell on eBay.” Though the stock in trade was hard goods, there’s no reason why the concept cannot be applied to e-books. Bookstores are (unfortunately) already being used as showrooms for book browsers, so this just legitimizes the process.
“It's not a replacement for the (city) library system, it's an enhancement,” says Wolff who also happens to be a book collector.The library hopes to secure at least $250,000 to acquire the first 10,000 titles. There will also be 100 e-readers available for checkout.“We wanted to find a low-cost, effective way to bring reading and learning to the county and also focus on the change in the world of technology...It will help people learn,” said Wolff.
De Arbeiderspers/A W Bruna, the largest publisher in the Netherlands, has removed DRM from its e-books for the first time.All of the publisher's e-books, aside from those sold via the iBooks store, will be sold with a watermark attached rather than any DRM system.
With the Digital Book World conference beginning tomorrow in NYC and ALA Midwinter 2013 getting underway in about 10 days, OverDrive has shared some 2012 usage and collection statistics.
In late 2012, we wrapped up a study of the e-reading consumer. Based on a survey of over 1200 e-reading households, we looked at reading habits (both physical and paper books), what devices they used, how many devices they owned (and how long they had them) and much more.
"Kindles have about 90 per cent of the market, which means Amazon virtually controls it. Only in the last two months have indies been able to sell a reader, mainly Kobos. Through the Booksellers Association, who have organised and orchestrated it, we get a kickback from every ebook sale from a Kobo reader that we sell."Smaller booksellers still have concerns about the rise of the ebook. Mr Johns cites the recent appearance of Alan Hollinghurst's The Stranger's Child at just 20p: "That was a shake. If an ebook is that cheap it doesn't generate enough income for anyone. If that sort of thing becomes the norm the economics of producing a book becomes shaky and it doesn't help anyone because the trade will collapse."
Penguin has just announced that they are joining On Demand Books’ growing Espresso Book Machine (EBM) program and will soon offer some of the titles they publish as POD books. The details on this deal are still sketchy, but it looks like On Demands Books scored quite the coup today.On Demand Books has been distributing their POD machine since 2007 but they have not been able to offer much in the way of popular titles. The last time I checked the only major publisher to support the EBM was HarperCollins, and they only release some of their backlist to the platform. The rest of the content came from Google Books (largely PD titles) and Lightning Source, Ingram’s own digital (ebooks, POD, etc) distribution service.
In another example, Smith cited an anonymous publisher that selectively windowed its ebook and print book titles to see if releasing the digital version after the print version would result in increased sales for the print version. Sales of print copies increased by 0.4% — but ebook sales decreased by 52% and overall sales dropped by 22%, presumably because of piracy.Anti-piracy efforts also reduce incidences of piracy. Smith studied the effects of anti-piracy laws in France and of the take-down of piracy site Megaupload. In the case of the anti-piracy laws in France, conversation about the laws and then their implementation helped boost digital content sales by anywhere between 5% and 30%, depending on the content. And the shutdown of Megaupload coincided with reduced instances of piracy across multiple countries.
Pricing, the intersection of rights and metadata, and publicity are the three primary obstacles to global sales, according to Kobo’s director of content management Ashleigh Gardner and her colleague Nathan Maharaj, the company’s director of merchandising.
Forty-five percent of those surveyed said standalone e-readers are "irrelevant." But they're not down on digital: 60% cited tablets -- such as the iPad or Kindle Fire -- as the ideal e-reading device.This year, 85% of those surveyed are optimistic about the role of e-books. But when it comes to specifics, there seems to be some anxiety. Just "64% believe that publishers are 'capable of competing' in the new digital marketplace," Publishers Weekly reports, and "55% are confident that their own companies can compete." McQuivey noted that both those figures are down about 10% from last year.

Crowdfunding: biblioHistória


biblioHistória perdeu este ano o apoio da Porto Editora, o que põe em causa a sua manutenção. O escritor Pedro Almeida Vieira, que criou esta base de dados de obras do género histórico em 2010, felizmente teima em não deixar morrer o projecto, e iniciou uma campanha de crowdfunding de modo a obter o financiamento necessário não só à manutenção da biblioHistória, mas também à sua melhoria. O objectivo da campanha é de apenas 1000 euros, pelo que não há razão para que uma iniciativa tão meritória chegue ao fim.

biblioHistória constitui uma base de dados, iniciada em meados de 2010 pelo escritor Pedro Almeida Vieira, que integra  obras de literatura do género histórico - ou com incursões históricas - publicadas por escritores portugueses desde o século XIX até à actualidade. Foi na pesquisa de informação que foi (re)descoberta a obra do primeiro escritor do romance moderno português, Guilherme Centazzi, que publicou «O Estudante de Coimbra», em 1840 e 1841, entretanto reeditada no ano passado pela Planeta (ver vídeo).
Actualmente, a biblioHistória tem já inventariados 645 autores (incluindo pseudónimos) e 1.770 títulos, entre romances, novelas, contos e narrativas ficcionadas. Estão também incluídas 59 obras de autores anónimos, grande parte das quais em periódicos. No entanto, ainda se continua a realizar pesquisas para a inclusão de mais obras e obtenção de mais informação.
