Amazon e l’editoria

Web & Tech

Amazon imprint Thomas & Mercer publishes mysteries, thrillers, and true crime novels; Little A handles literary fiction and nonfiction; AmazonCrossing is responsible for translated texts; 47North does science fiction and fantasy; Skyscape is for teen and young adult books; there’s Two Lions for children’s books; Jet City Comics for, well, comics; Montlake Romance handles—you guessed it—romance; Waterfall Press publishes Christian fiction; Grand Harbor Press is responsible for a category Amazon describes only as “inspirational;” Lake Union Publishing handles “book club fiction;” Amazon Original Stories publishes short stories and nonfiction 1; AmazonEncore is for “rediscovered works;” and TOPPLE Books spotlights works selected by Jill Soloway.

Seguo Amazon da anni, nel suo rapporto con il mondo del libro. Ammetto di aver perso il conto dei marchi editoriali che si sono aggiunti nel tempo. Non sapevo fossero così tanti. Alcuni pubblicano anche in italiano, tra l’altro.

L’articolo di Wired racconta quanto la presenza di Amazon sia diventata pervasiva, non solo nell’editoria.
