The article focuses on WEbook, a next-generation publisher in Bethesda, Maryland that does away with the solitary author in favor of an online community of writers. WEbook's first offering, a novel called "Pandora," was created by 34 people in six months. WEbook would be one of the first publishers specializing in the genre. The company will publish books the traditional way but will also deliver electronic books via download from the Web.
