    The idea is an interesting one, offering a short story format to allow authors to write a book of any length they choose. As long as the plan isn't to abridge current novels into a "bite-size" chunk, then this is a good idea.


    Where I can see it go wrong is if they plan on selling cheap "summaries" of popular books, forcing authors and publishers to accept less money for something that's taken a lot more time to create.
