downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Hop over to www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Science Fiction stories on your mobile

Interesting find for mobile/cell phone users: www.wattpad.com

It's a very small downloadable app for your phone, compatible with most modern handsets - simply bluetooth it from your PC to your phone and then you can read stories on your mobile. The text size is decent for small screens and the navigation of the site as good as it can be.

A lot of the content is user-generated, but the Gutenberg Project(to digitise books that are out of copyright and make them available free)is to put 17,000 books on the Wattpad user-generated content service.

As the mobile content news site MoCo News commented, That should improve the quality of legal content available on the service.
