And for once I can’t blame Big Tech.
The book as of this moment is among the top nonfiction sellers on Amazon. It has already sold enough copies there before and after pub day to crack bestseller lists easily. It’s among the bestselling Amazon books in AUSTRALIA, for feck’s sake!
But try to find PANDEMIA in a Barnes & Noble. You can’t. B&N has effectively refused to stock it.
How about independent bookstores, those bastions of free expression, our last refuges against Amazon’s evil monopoly?
Yeah, about that…
At Powell’s, in Portland, Oregon, one of the largest independent bookstores in the United States, YOU CAN’T EVEN BUY PANDEMIA ONLINE. Search for it, either by the title or my name, it doesn’t come up.
Mein Kampf, however, is just fine. Powell’s has plenty of those available.
You can even pick which cover you like best - do you prefer ol’ Adolf himself, or are you more a swastika type?
PANDEMIA, however? NFW.
Oh well. I guess some ideas are just too dangerous to allow readers to see.
Never thought I’d say this, but thank you, Amazon.
