New York Times Book Review: 6 Best Young Adult Books of | InvestorPlaceReaders of the New York Times will have to steel themselves this weekend, as the unseemly brawl between Hachette and Amazon erupts on to the tranquil pages of the Grey Lady. Perhaps the most incendiary item in Sunday's edition is due to be a full-page ad paid for by a group of bestselling authors — and backed by over other writers — calling on Amazon "in the strongest possible terms to stop harming the livelihood of the authors on whom it has built its business". The extraordinary move is the latest salvo in a battle over terms which has seen Amazon delay delivery and remove the possibility of pre-orders on a swathe of books by Hachette authors, including JK Rowling and James Patterson. The online leviathan Amazon says it is attempting to "lower ebook prices"; publishing conglomerate Hachette argues that it is seeking "terms that value appropriately for the years ahead the author's unique role in creating books, and the publisher's role in editing, marketing, and distributing them". Both sides have gradually sharpened their rhetoric over recent weeks, with Hachette saying that it would be suicidal to accept Amazon's proposals, and Amazon that Hachette should " stop using their authors as human shields ". Authors have moved to take sides in the debate, with the bestselling writer Douglas Preston collecting over signatures to a letter — the text of which is due to appear in Sunday's advertisement — calling on readers to contact Amazon's Jeff Bezos "and tell him what you think" about the situation. It is not right for Amazon to single out a group of authors, who are not involved in the dispute, for selective retaliation.
