We had a great show today on The Biblio File, marred only by a minor technical malfunction in the middle. I was joined by Paula Berinstein of The Writing Show (as well as a number of listeners in the text chat) and we talked for over an hour about Ficbot’s and my posts, the Amazon/Macmillan situation in general, and related matters.
Items we discussed include:
- “Maybe we should be hurting the authors” by Ficbot
- "The Amazon/Macmillan blow-up: An e-book lover’s appeal for understanding" by me
- “Why do people want more expensive backlist books?” by Tobias Buckell, and KingTaco’s comment on same
- “’Game Change’ truly changes the game’” (on one-star Amazon rating to protest e-book “windowing”) by Alejandro Sanchez
Hopefully more people will join us for a future show!
