Apple Supreme Court Antitrust Case

The Supreme Court Antitrust Case is based on collusion between Apple and other book retailers to collectively make deals with publishers, wherein publishers set minimum prices for books, and the retailers take a share of profits. This was done to resist Amazon's $9.99 pricing model for new paperbacks, which made it difficult for competitors to offer an attractive pricing proposition to consumers- because, as publishers claimed, $9.99 was not enough to cover costs.

This type of collusion does seem to be a clear Antitrust case, but it is not so. Some claim that the Court is going after the wrong party. After all, Apple, Nook and the other defendants were reacting to a predatory move by monolith Amazon, and thus spurring competition in the industry- resulting in lower prices overall. Why were the scrappy newcomers being charged for trying to compete with an overbearing industry heavyweight?

On the other hand, Amazon has risen to dominance due to its convenient interface and vast product offering. Perhaps this collusion is just as much as publishers trying to retain importance, as it is new eBook sellers trying to gain a foothold.

All Books, Including New 'The Shard Of Palrinah'!

Diesel: http://www.diesel-ebooks.com/item/SW00000275856/Grish-T.-P.-Steel-Magick-and-Faith-Book-1-of-The-Remus-Rothwyn-Chronicles/1.html

Description:

In the ancient and wild world of Glenryth, Fey creatures and a nascent humanity have come into conflict, the motives of each other mutually unfathomable and alien.

Technological cults and Monotheistic religions are worshipped, any suspicion of pagan or Fey magickal taint is reviled. Prophets spread far and wide, offering hope and comfort to the beleaguered masses. Mankind is not totally separate from the energies that suffuse Glenryth, as an unfortunate few are born as Touched.

When local dwarves put a curse upon the town of High Peaks, Remus, the aloof and irritable woodcutter and sage, must try and ebb the tide of xenophobic anger that could engulf himself and any other folk that are labelled as outcasts. But when a caravan of technocrat pilgrims fails to arrive, and the body of a local child is found in the woodlands, Remus, along with the capricious Touched Elaina, must try to understand the nature of morality in a world cloaked in suspicion and fear, and, ultimately, to prevent a brewing war that could send the region spiraling into chaos and destruction.

Author's Note:

This book is a work that has been years in the making, and it was finished in a feverish few months. It is a dark fantasy with more greys than blacks or whites, and themes of the nature of belief systems, and the consequences of individual power.


2) The Shard of Palrinah: Book 2 of The Remus Rothwyn Chronicles


Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Shard-Palrinah-Rothwyn-Chronicles-ebook/dp/B00D3XJ1AQ

Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/321438


Description:

After saving High Peaks from a devastating war between Humankind and Fey, Remus and Elaina head to the grand city of Yondern to continue their adventures, yearning for excitement and the chance to do good.

However, the long-brewing political conflict between the Steelwielders and Paragonites has erupted into open war, and try as they might, the travelers cannot escape the eye of suspicious factions. Once-friendly factions have turned wary, and they find themselves allying with those who they would least expect.

An old friend, the bard Perfidian, confronts them with troubling information, hinting at a deeper objective to the brewing war, and possibly to an object of power that could wreak devastation upon the land in the hands of the power-hungry.

The three friends must discover what the Steelwielder technocrats and Paragonite monks are truly seeking in a remote corner of Glenryth, in a deadly game of cat and mouse involving dark and sinister forces, both Human and otherwise.

This is the sequel to Book 1, Steel, Magick and Faith!

Author's Note:

The Shard of Palrinah is the dark fantasy sequel to Steel, Magick and Faith. The full-length novel is the result of a lot of love and sweat, and I am excited about it being out!

Diesel: http://www.diesel-ebooks.com/item/SW00000286903/Grish-T.-P.-Maldives-Malady-A-Tropical-Adventure/1.html

Description:

Dominic is an average University student who feels his life is stuck in a rut. Although he has a job, good grades and friends, he feels like his life is passing him by without him really living, or doing anything outside the mundane and mainstream.

A trip to a seemingly unknown island in the Maldives is the perfect opportunity for him to have a unique and personal experience, so Dom sets off, alone. However he finds that it is not so easy to escape the grasp of mediocrity and uniformity that has enveloped his world, and he must reevaluate his feelings about life, self-worth, and what makes an individual.

This is a fictional short story with light drama and humour. It is set in a fictional version of the real world, in which a mysterious island called Goljaban exists among the Maldives islands.

Author's Note:

 A short story I started writing whilst in University, and polished off recently. I like to think it has a dry wit, and light drama elements. I hope you enjoy it.

Update About Book Writing

Just thought I'd share some info about books I'm working on.

I am about halfway done with The Shard of Palrinah: Book 2 of The Remus Rothwyn Chronicles, it is the second preview on my author page preview section: http://booksoftpgrish.blogspot.com.au/p/free-extracts-previews-and-goodies.html.

The novel sees the different human, and perhaps Fey, factions of Glenryth fighting vociferously over an ancient artifact that holds the promise of glory and power. Remus, Elaina and Perfidian must concoct a plan to get to the artifact first, so the entire region doesn't suffer being used as pawns on a chessboard. However, acquiring the tempting and powerful artifact will not be the end of their problems.

I am also started on Torn Minds: Opheria Tales 2, a brand new fantasy noir mystery involving hypnotism and mind control, and a corrupt conspiracy Tomis and Oath must unravel. There are no extracts of this yet:

The author page link above, also gives extra previews of existing novels, beyond what is found on the Amazon page.
