Amazon Pulls Werewolf Novel Sequel For Surprisingly Non-Werewolf Reasons

Amazon is no stranger to independent publishing drama. But when it pulled books in the past, it at least purported to have some sort of legitimate reason. In the case of High Moor 2: Moonstruck (the story of one werewolf gang’s quest to keep its existence hidden and the extreme lengths to which it goes to protect its deadly secret) that reason appears to be… hyphens.


Everything Amazon Is Supposedly Working On

You can always expect that Amazon will push out new Kindles and Fires year by year, but the Everything Store has so much more in the works. From travel sites to retail stores, there’s a whole bunch of rumoured stuff Amazon might be getting ready to roll out. Here’s a breakdown.


Kindle Voyage Teardown: It Sure Is Cramped Behind That Glass Screen

For those who prefer the finer things in life, Amazon’s Kindle Voyage provides a luxurious e-reading experience with a steep $US290 price tag — if you also want wireless connectivity. But that didn’t stop the folks at iFixit from immediately tearing it asunder once they got their hands on one. If you think the Voyage is pretty on the outside, you’ll definitely enjoy its electronic eye candy on the inside.


Kindle Just Got A Family Plan So You Can Finally Share Your Ebooks

Kobo Aura H2O Review: A Gorgeous, Waterproof Screen That No One Needs

The aftermarket-treated Waterproof Kindle is just about perfect: an already fantastic e-reader with the added bonus of being built like a rock. But all that comes with one hell of a price tag — $US240, specifically. The new, waterproof $US190 Kobo Aura H2O, though, promises to deliver on all those points for a fraction of the cost.


Amazon Has A Faster Kindle Fire HDX And A Fleet Of Cheap, Tiny Tablets

Last year, Amazon’s Kindle tablets really grew up. They got fantastic and stylish new design, and a software update to back it up. This year, Amazon’s trotting out a new 8.9 Kindle Fire HDX with faster guts. You won’t find a 7-inch version if that’s what you’re looking for, but Amazon does have some staggeringly cheap new Kindle Fire HDs to take its place for just $US100 a pop.


Kindle Voyage: This Is What A $200 E-Reader Looks Like (It's Gorgeous)

It’s been a few years since e-ink Kindles took a big step forward. 2012’s Kindle Paperwhite was the last big splash. But now Amazon’s got a new, beautiful, premium e-reader for you to read words off of. This is the Kindle Voyage.
