Tor.com chooses corporate loyalty over SFF community discussion

Congratulations to “Management Services” at Tor.com for successfully preventing any SFF community discussion about the e-book pricing dispute between publishing house Macmillan, its parent company, and Internet retailer Amazon. Apparently, Tor.com’s philosophy of “publisher agnosticism” is nothing more than corporate jargon, for the message from Macmillan CEO John Sargent still stands proudly atop Tor.com’s blog and the page is still closed to comments. Keep up the good work, folks!

P.S. I’m shopping for a copy of Kage Baker’s novel The Empress of Mars (Tor, 2009) ... over at AbeBooks.
