can i buy an author?

January 7, 2009

oh, it’s not that kind of store….  Amazon unveiled the beta of  ‘Amazon Author Stores‘ which provides a bibliography, biographical information, photos, and discussion boards with more to come.  the entries aren’t very complete as of now, most are just bibliographies; this probably has to do with the fact that Amazon is creating the content.  i did notice with James Patterson’s entry that his many series are grouped together and movies are also listed which is kind of handy.  we’ll see where this goes, it seems like a lot to maintain even if much of it is based on algorithms.
