8:43AM - You can read it in the park, you can read it in the dark

I've really gotta hand it to the Japanese. First they gave us Godzilla, now this: Novels you can read on your cell phone.

I for one think this is an idea whose time has come. It could be a real boon to the science fiction community, where works published online have gone on to win major awards even while editors continue to only accept manuscripts the old-fashioned way because "e-mail submissions are too hard to read." Just so long as people don't start reading on their cell phones in the car, we should be fine.

Those wonderful Japanese. Now if they'll just get to work on that giant robot I've wanted since I was a kid, we'll finally be getting somewhere.
