Dennis Johnson, Melville House Publishing
Welcome to Late Night Conversation. This week Paul speaks with Melville House publisher Dennis Johnson about US V Apple, Amazon’s vertical monopoly, Amazon’s business relationship with the U.S. government, Amazon’s grant funding strategies, and heartbreaking Amazon-induced book culture realities.
In Paul’s opening monologue, he announces that we’ve posted website links for the 50 independent publishers and 55 independent bookstores participating in our One for the Books Campaign , and Paul’s Uncle Alfonso calls upon every writer in the world to boycott Amazon.com.
Sunday, July 28th is the deadline for The First and Hopefully Last Annual Judge Denise Cote Antitrust Poetry Contest . Participants needn’t self-identify as poets, but they must write creatively! Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
“As we go forward we can see a glimpse of the future . . . and it’s going to be a world in which we have a government-sanctioned monopoly. I don’t have to say much for people to realize this isn’t a good thing.”
