On-demand publisher Lulu is counting down the weeks to its first Lulu Blooker Prize for books based on blogs or websites. Judges: Cory Doctorow, science fiction author and co-creator of Boing Boing; Paul Jones, of ibiblio and UNC; and Robin (RobLimo) Miller, is editor-in-chief of OSTG.
The short list of contenders includes books from already published writers, like the guys at Spinsanity, as well as the, ummm, non-traditional: the memoir of a London call girl. Just as there are many more gifted musicians than there is radio station air time, there are more creative wordsmiths than paper-and-ink-combined- with-read-time. Events like this one help us find those new voices.
