New York Publishers Collaborating on Online Bookstore

This New York Times article could be announcing a game changer. It came to me through the Sisters in Crime monthly recap. If we worry that traditional publishers are giving up on print, we may be very wrong. It looks like the Big Six (or is it five or seven?) still have a few tricks up their sleeves.

Also, while it shouldn't distract us from our writing, novelists need to stay aware of the dangers of content and distribution being in the same hands. Amazon is getting too close to being a monopoly and this decision by the major publishers might even up the competition and keep everything a bit more equal. Here's a cut and paste version of the link if the one above didn't work for you.
