Seriously? Now They’re Just Being Dicks
On one hand, Amazon has returned a “buy” button to the page of at least one of my Tor/Macmillan books. On the other hand, it’s to buy used copies of the book. So this is Amazon saying that they’re happy to sell you my book, as long as they’re the only ones making money off the transaction, not Macmillan, or Tor, or me.
Perhaps tomorrow’s “buy” button will allow you to buy the book new, but only if you promise to travel to my house and kick me hard and square in the balls.
Hey Amazon: Do let me know when your senior management all decides to stop being twelve years old. Thanks.
Update: Commenter Brian Mastenbrook offers up an alternate theory.
Update, 12:43pm: The “Buy Used” button is now down, which I suspect supports B.M.’s theory.
