What Scalzi Said

John Scalzi is pointing out that in light of the Amazon mess, now would be an excellent time to go out and buy a Macmillan author's book from someplace other than Amazon, because this is going to hurt them. Let me note that is particularly true of authors debuting this week. As an Ace/Penguin author, this doesn't affect me directly, but what Amazon is doing is really bad for publishing in general and writers in specific. Also, a lot of my friends and colleagues are among the collateral damage here.

UPDATED to add: Speaking of which, my friend David Coe has a Macmillan release today, The Horseman's Gambit. He blogs about it here in case you're interested.
