Sci-fi writers declare war in Amazon
The thing about e-books is that there is no paper, printing or anything else that would be associated with an actual book, so according to the online bookseller Amazon this should be reflected in the price.
But the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America has cut links with Amazon following a dispute but the retailer and publisher Macmillan.
Macmillan thinks that a reasonable price for an e-book is $9.99, but the publisher feels that readers would be willing to pay as much as $15 for one of the latest titles.
It seems that while Macmillan believed it could have the advantage over Amazon, but the retailer has now suspended sales of all Macmillan titles, as a result all Amazon links have been removed from the science fiction writer’s site too.
