With so much attention recently given to the Amazon and Hachette dispute over their on going contract negotiations, Tuesday's news that big five publisher Simon & Schuster had agreed a deal with Amazon came as something of a surprise to many in the industry. If we were to listen to the anti-Amazon ramblings of New York Times journalist David Streitfeld, you'd swear no one could agree a deal with Amazon. According to Business Insider, negotiations between Simon & Schuster and Amazon were agreed two months ahead the date the current contract expires. The new deal officially kicks in from January 1st, 2015 and covers terms on both e-book and print books.
