SFWA Takes A Stand

Originally published at Cheryl's Mewsings. Please leave any comments there.

The ongoing war between Amazon and the rest of the publishing industry took a new twist today when SFWA announced that it would be replacing links to Amazon with links to other booksellers.

Most of my Amazon links vanished when the fuss about their deleting LGBT books happened, but of course they now own The Book Depository so I should do something about those links too.

I have actually just developed a piece of code that will allow me to remove all links to a specific bookseller quickly and easily. You can see it in action at the foot of this review. I need to implement that everywhere I have a book review, and sign up with a few folks like IndieBound and Powells. But it takes time, and I don’t have any right now.
