“A Quaint System for Publishing” – article by Hugh Howey

“It won’t be long before we look back and marvel at how bestselling books are produced today. The system of remote production by disparate artists, followed by their discovery by publishing houses, won’t be around forever. There are too many inefficiencies, lost opportunities, and glaring weaknesses in this system. This really hit me in Berlin at the Klopotek Publishing Minds conference.”

Bestselling author Hugh Howey, who was a speaker at the Publishers’ Forum 2014, uses some of his observations made at the conference to come up with a new concept for co-creating works at a publisher’s office: read the article.

“Sun and Storms over the Tiergarten”: article by David Worlock

“’Its a moral and an ethical system ‘ . Richard Charkin , in a passable imitation of the new business-like Archbishop of Canterbury , defended copyright at last week’s epic Publishers Forum in Berlin , though we all knew that he was referring to a set of trading rules which led Byron to tell his publisher , John Murray , that ‘ Barabbas was the first publisher ‘ .Klopotek’s Berlin show , over 250 strong this year , has become a stadium for opposing positions and sharply contrasted stances .


Helmut von Berg , indefatigable organizer of this event for a decade , retires this year . He earnt the grateful thanks of all of us present in Berlin . He is succeeded by Ruediger Wischenbart and an editorial board who now know how hard it will be to improve on this .”

“For ‘ten years I have been in charge of this conference,’ Helmut von Berg told the Publishers’ Forum assembly here Tuesday evening. ‘And I wondered what changed in that time.’ The director of Klopotek, the publishing software company, von Berg paused with the timing that comes of a decade’s practice at conference-closing speeches.
