The Amazon/Macmillan mess continues, with Macmillan books still not showing up on Amazon even after they appeared to say they would relist them. John Scalzi has another excellent post up this morning on the matter, and I agree. Don’t let it stop you from buying a book just because it’s not on Amazon. The Department has a few friends working and writing for Tor, who is owned by Macmillan, and we’d certainly hate to see them suffer due to Amazon being stubborn.

Among the writers Department H endorses (besides, obviously, Mr. Scalzi) are Tobias Buckell and Charles Stross’s Merchant Princes fantasy series; we’re more familiar with his Laundry-verse books (The Atrocity Archives, Jennifer Morgue) but I don’t have any qualms with recommending his other works.   If you’re looking for something more comics-related, there’s always Halo: Evolutions, which features a story by Fred van Lente, a writer for Marvel. There’s also a slew of manga and comics-related titles over on the Tor.com store.

Come on, iPad…
