Here’s an odd thing; Amazon is no longer displaying reviews from Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and the like. Have no idea what this means. Maybe they’re just behind. Well, no, the PW reviews have disappeared from pages that had them a couple weeks ago. How annoying. Those reviews are fully on display on counterpart pages of Barnes & Noble‘s site.
Meanwhile, Locus has had a falling-out of some sort with BookSense, and so data from their bestseller lists will no longer appear in the magazine or online. Perhaps I should remove their links altogether (from the New Books pages, etc.), since I’ve never gotten any kind of commission from them. (Amazon, meanwhile, provides 3-figure amounts every quarter year, which helps defray website expenses.)
