Publisher Review: Infinity Plus

Time for another, very brief, publisher review. This time my merciless gaze is firmly locked on Infinity Plus. A couple of days ago I received an email from them telling me (and others I'm sure) about some of their new books. Instead of just reposting the email on my blog I think it's worth mentioning a few things about Infinity Plus. Infinity Plus is different from other publishers. They don't normally publish new books, but instead make sure that out of prints books become available again in your favorite eBook format. The idea is the authors themselves choose which of their books they want to preserve for future readers. Not all of the books published by Infinity Plus will be fiction, some of it will be non-fiction as well. A noble cause.

To find out more about Infinity Plus visit their website and/or follow them on Twitter (@ipebooks).

So far I've only managed to read one book from their catalogue, but that book was very good. It was A Writer's Life by Eric Brown and you can read my review of it here.

That's it from me and my mini-review of Infinity Plus. Let's have a look at their latest books instead.
