Fictionwise is a leading company in eBooks that are available from a web based dealer.
Fictionwise features both DRM (secure) and non-DRM eBooks in a wide variety of formats. They also have magazine subscriptions available. Fictionwise is an excellent source of short fiction as individual items rather than in an anthology. They have a limited selection of free books, and occasionally offer free downloads in special promotions. They also have a mobipocket lending library for members of their BuyWise Club* (currently offering a very limited selection). They also sell subscriptions to eMagazines.
- The BuyWise Club is no longer being continued, although existing memberships are valid until the end of their subscription.

 Lending Library
Those who buy the FictionWise Membership Club are also given an LibWise account. Simply use the same username password created for the FictionWise store to access the LibWise library. And one can start borrowing books right away. The only limitation is that books in LibWise are in Mobi Format (secured/unsecured).
Sites other than Fictionwise support the Fictionwise library lending program. You have to register with with the site, but then all the books you sign out will show up on your Fictionwise bookshelf as if you had signed it out of the Fictionwise lending library.
NEW - The Fictionwise Buywise Club can no longer be renewed and new subscriptions are no longer available. All existing Buywise Club members may continue to use their benefits until their memberships expire.
