S&S Meets SS

Simon & Schuster took over the publication of a book DZ and I did once. So I guess I'm an S&S author, although I haven't made any money from them in many years.

Right now, their big sellers are Bruce Springsteen's autobiography (which I liked!), Amy Schumer's autobiography, and A Man Called Ove. They are doing fine, as publishing companies go.

But they may have signed their death warrant with this purchase: $250K to Breitbart Nazi Milo Yiannopoulos. Publishers have signed villains before, but I can't remember any who have received this reaction from a major review of books:
In response to this disgusting validation of hate, we will not cover a single Simon & Schuster book in 2017.  —Chicago Review of Books
