Where did the story of e-books begin?

The Future of Electronic Publishing: "Write, Create, Innovate"

Charlton Heston as Moses in The Ten Commandments (1956)

Moses with some early tablets … a 1989 hardware edition of the Bible was one of the precursors of today’s ebooks

What was the first ebook? Debate rages … When Peter James published his thriller Host on two floppy disks, in 1993, it was billed as the “world’s first electronic novel”, and attacked as a harbinger of the apocalypse which would destroy literature as we knew it. Now it has been accepted into the Science Museum’s collection as one of the earliest examples of the form, as the spotlight of academia begins to shine on the history of digital publishing.
