Author Sues Bookseller For Selling Book

No, really. Would I lie to you?

Publishers Weekly has the story today. An author is claiming his distributor/publisher stole his copyright, and so is suing anyone who sold that book.

This, of course, is exactly the way a smart author goes about building good will and getting booksellers to carry his works. Uh-huh. You betcha.

If in the near future a small store, or a big chain, decides that it's just too much hassle to carry books from small publishers, you can lay some of the blame at the feet of Mr. Larry Townsend, the man who sued the bookstore.
