The New York Times has opened two publishing programs, turning its massive collection of reporting into short eBooks that will be published with Byliner and Vook.

The paper will publish “up to a dozen” Byliner eBooks ranging from 10,000 to 20,000 words apiece and including titles about culture, sports, business, science and health. The series begins on December 17 with the $2.99 “Snow Fall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek” by New York Times reporter John Branch.

Vook will work on the TimesFiles project, a “curated selections of articles” from the paper. Here’s more about the TimesFiles project, from the release:
