On Sunday, more than 900 authors publicly called on Amazon to change its tactics in the dispute with book publisher Hachette.
The authors did it in an open letter in The New York Times and you'll recognize many of the writers: Stephen King, Richard Russo, Sara Paretsky, Jennifer Egan and many more.
The writers reminded Amazon that they'd helped the company build its brand and "this is no way to treat a business partner. Nor is it the right way to treat your friends."
