SFWA Removes Links to Amazon.com

The Science Fiction Writers of America plans to remove many of its links to Amazon.com, following Amazon’s decision to remove 4,000 books distributed by IPG in the aftermath of a pricing dispute between the two companies. When possible, SFWA volunteers will redirect links to indiebound.org, Powell’s, and Barnes and Noble. From the SFWA website:

“While Amazon has the right to decide with what company it does business, its removal of many of our authors’ books from its ordering system will have an economic impact on them. Our authors depend on people buying their books and a significant percentage of them have books distributed through IPG.  Therefore, SFWA is redirecting Amazon.com links from the organization’s website to other booksellers because we would prefer to send traffic to stores where the books can actually be purchased.”
