"Authors to rebuke Amazon over Hachette dispute with full-page NYT ad"

From AppleInsider:

Nearly 1,000 authors affected by the ongoing e-book spat between Amazon and machete have signed their names to a letter — set to run as a full-page advertisement in the Sunday New York Times later this week — imploring the online retailer to settle the dispute and calling on readers to voice their displeasure directly to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

To my literary brothers and sisters, I say, "booyah." You can read the letter here; and here's a good perspective from the New York Times on how this is affecting individual authors.
