    The more things change, the more they stay the same

    I read a blog, from a respected science fiction writer, about Random House sticking it to authors who go through their Hydra e-book arm. Why does this not surprise me? Business seems to love sticking it to the little man, and then laughing to the bank. And what makes things worse is that organized labor does the same, just a different way, so the little guy gets it every which way.

    You're buying the narrative that unions are bad guys. Who do you supposes benefits from pushing that narrative?

    i'd say they named that imprint well, considering its ominous greek origin and comic book character reference...

    Yeah, the union thing - my dad was a union member for decades and they got the workers things no business would voluntarily offer. But like everything, it depends on which union you're talking about. There are good ones and crappy ones.
