Amazonfail and Macmillanfail

I hope some day to be publishd by Tor and I buy a lot of books and records on Amazon.

However, Amazon, when they suddenly axed paid content, cut my income by two-thirds overnight, and Macmillan's academic subsidiary Palgrave, who distribute my IB Tauris books in the US, have a nasty habit of sitting on both sales and return figures for a very long time indeed, to my considerable disadvantage when currencies are volatile.

So, here's the thing for me about any boycotts - I will be over here watching you guys fight.
