By weird coincidence, on the same day I announce the launch of an ebook review, I get to enjoy some of the harsh realities of the ebook business. Over the past year I've published two collections of my pieces about the brain, Brain Cuttings and More Brain Cuttings. I just found out that Amazon has decided, for now, not to sell them. (Here's some background.) You still have lots of options for getting your hands on these ebooks. Scott & Nix, the publisher, offers both titles in pdf and epub formats. (
) Barnes & Noble sells then for the Nook. (
) Apple sells it in them iBookstore. (
) Update: Publisher's Lunch has the details of the showdown between Amazon and Independent Publishers Group over Kindle titles.
