In the slipstream of the London Book Fair, Gareth Mitchell is joined by e-publishers and writers to examine the future of digital publishing.

Coinciding with the London Book Fair, Click looks at the future of digital publishing in a special edition from the BBC's Council Chamber.

Is the digital age one to fear or be embraced by the publishing world?

Do electronic book reading devices sound the death knell for the physical book?

Does this brave new world democratise the world of books, leading to stunning new voices or a sea of talentless self-promoters?

And how will the reader find the desired author in the future?

In a live edition in front of an audience, Click's Gareth Mitchell and Bill Thompson are joined by a panel of experts, including Dan Franklin, the digital publisher at Random House in London, the e-book publisher, Rosemarie Hudson, founder of HopeRoad Publishing, and the poet and host of the Book Club Boutique, Salena Godden.
