The e-book revolution, so far, has largely been in fiction, but there are many people who like nonfiction, read nonfiction, and buy nonfiction. Our new line of non-fiction, is intended for the same audience that reads science fiction: literate — but not necessarily literary, not afraid of big concepts, at home with the idea that there is a reality that can be described and understood.
The ideal Naked Reader Press non-fiction book is, first of all, well-written, interesting, and fun to read. It can be serious or light, but it must be based on facts, verifiable facts, with enough support to allow facts to be checked, quotes to be verified, and arguments that even someone completely new to the topic can follow.
Some examples of books like what we’d like to see:
- A Short History of Nearly Everything, by Bill Bryson
- Any of Isaac Asimov’s non-fiction.
- What Does a Martian Look Like?, by Jack Cohen and Ian Stewart.
