PSA: .epub files are compressed webpages. That is all.

OK, this is niche even for me, but I just found out about this a few days ago and I’m still buzzed. I just spent a few delightful weekends in a coffee shop with a tablet devouring the basic w3schools.com tutorials, so web programming is fresh and interesting to me, and I’ve just lately spent some time digging into my collection of ebooks, comparing and contrasting stuff. It’s really interesting to me to dig into what my ebooks are doing, both in terms of general structure, and in the different ways different authors use HTML and CSS to accomplish the basic goal of sequential text.

This is neat stuff. I wonder if this means I could stitch together some of my already-written short fiction into ebook form, just as a learning exercise.

  1. I vote yes to building an ebook anthology of your short fiction.
