Amazon's ill-considered game of chicken with Macmillan last weekend continues to backfire for the bookseller; now the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America have gotten involved, delinking Amazon for "hurting authors."
Science-fiction books from Tor are back for sale on Amazon.com, after a few days when the online bookseller tried to pull all titles from Tor's parent company, Macmillan. At issue: how much Amazon can fix prices for e-book editions.
Online books retailer Amazon.com erased untold numbers of books with mature or queer themes from its site, apparently in a drive to remove "adult" material. And some science-fiction authors were hit hard.
