    I've also read (and spoken to author friends) who say that amazon's kindle pricing is high because these days, fewer people buy physical books, with commuting and travel and so on, the real sales point is kindle, not hard copy. As a result they will price the kindle high and discount the physical copy as kindle doesn't take up warehouse sapce. They then claim the kindle price is "set by pulisher". The authors I know say this is utter bullhockey.
    "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

      And another return to my Amazon Audio Book CD Set fiasco. I got a notification from Amazon last night warning me my return window on the original broken set was closing. I returned it and 2 of the other broken Sets on August 30TH. So I had to make yet another phone call because my Amazon account Chat function is locked to the chat session I had on the 6TH and won't let me end it to start a new session. Thankfully the Rep I spoke with told me they would close the return. It makes no sense. I sent that back on the 30TH and they should have known about it the second the box was scanned by UPS.

            No, he's not! I asked if there might be more days and he says that a conflict has come up and he won't be able to make it at all.

            I was only scheduled to be at NYCC for the one day, and the one panel, and a conflict just came up that I can't get around so I've had to let them know I won't be able to attend. Next time for sure.

              The video from JMS' appearance at the Politics and Prose bookstore is up. JMS said:

              For those who couldn't make it to my talk at Politics and Prose in DC, the video is now available. Only downside is you can hear the legit terror in my voice given prior speakers. I'm rarely this nervous.

                Putting this here so I don't lose the link. Might come in handy looking up other people of interest for con appearances.

                  JMS got an award from his high school and linked to this video from the event. The sound is pretty bad but what I could hear was interesting. Still trying to figure out what he announced toward the end that caused a fair bit of excitement.

                    He's adding a three part prize to a raffle they are holding. Winner will go to his home for dinner, get a signed Sense8 script, and the third part (the one that got the biggest reaction) was he'd name a character in one of those AWA comics after the winner as well.

                      Thanks. I'm betting those all sold a bunch of raffle tickets. I remember him donating a signed Sleeping in Light script for the raffle at the high school comic con he attended/supported uite a while ago.

                        Galaxycon Louisville had put their schedule out but so far there's only one panel with JMS listed. A Behind the Scenes of B5 with Peter David. Which I can see being a lot of fun but I'd be amazed if there's no spotlight or Becoming Superman panel. I've tweeted to ask.
