The place of fiction

A question that pesters me: In a world where entertainment means digital and interactive, where celebrity news and unscripted reality shows vie for our attention, what exactly is the status of a book of fiction? I don't have the answer to this one. Any thoughts?

  1. No matter what the medium, there will always be room for great stories. Whether they are the kind that allow an escape from the realities of day to day living, or to explore deeper feelings on a familiar experience, or just for fun, people will always enjoy great stories. How they enjoy them, may be different than reading them from black characters printed on white paper, but they will enjoy them nonetheless.

    Whether it's through an eReader, like a Kindle, on a tablet computer like an iPad, or beamed into your brain from some futuristic iLink device, I don't see stories going away, just the way people get them.
