So I'm gonna signal boost this: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2013/03/06/a ... rom-alibi/

Random House responds to the online commentary:

http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-t ... print.html

(OK, really now, they're not allowed to comment publicly until they talk to you directly? *BLEEP* that noise, guys. This is the Era of the Internet. You don't want the bad noise, don't do things to earn the bad noise. And music industry styled contracts earn the bad noise and then some.)

SFWA responds to that letter:

http://www.sfwa.org/2013/03/sfwa-respon ... ra-letter/

Random House is now "on notice" that their status as an SFWA market is no longer guaranteed.

Random House has backed off part of it. Now there's a choice between the profit sharing model, and the conventional advance model, and they're no longer going to charge the author for stuff done for the ebook version. And promised $10,000 of marketing for anything else to be done (which will disappear quickly when you do opt for the marketing). And they added an "if under 300 copies are sold in a 12 month period, you can ask for a rights reversion".

SFWA is still reviewing. I'm expecting some sort of response from them, although I don't expect they're going to rescind putting RH on notice.
