Amazon just announced that New York Times bestselling author F. Paul Wilson, winner of the Stoker, Inkpot, Porgie and Prometheus awards, has signed an exclusive distribution agreement for 5 of his novels. The titles include:
- An Enemy of the State, winner of the Prometheus Hall of Fame Award
- Wheels Within Wheels, winner of the first Prometheus Award
- The Tery
- Dydeetown World, on the American Library Association's list of "Best Books for Young Adults" and on the New York Public Library's recommended list of "Books for the Teen Age"
- Healer, winner of the Prometheus Hall of Fame Award
I'm not entirely convinced that this is a good business decision, but Amazon sure seems to think so. Why is Amazon the only one pursuing exclusive deals, I wodner?
