Needless to say, the big publishing news this week is the Wylie Agency’s Odyssey Editions and its exclusive deal to sell e-books by major authors like Nabokov and Phillip Roth only through the Kindle store. The responses from publishers and publishing people have been swift and mostly outraged. Here’s a little roundup:
The New York Times calls out the outrage a “fuss.”
The Guardian remarks on the “Fear and loathing” of American publishers.
On another tack, Munsey’s Technosnarl points out that the Odyssey e-books are nicely formatted.
eBookNewser quotes indie booksellers who are against Wylie.
GalleyCat rounds up our and others coverage, just as we’re rounding theirs back up.
