Today, Amazon announced the imminent launch of its newest endeavor, Kindle Worlds, a publishing platform for fanfiction. When I read the announcement, I was horrified, then angry, then sad. I want to take a moment to explain why this is such a tragedy.
Yeah, 100% not okay with this.
Classic corporate greed and also you can already put fanfiction on your kindle/kobe/reader for free at any conversion website, I’ve done it a couple of times to read longer fics that I’d prefer to have on my kindle than on a screen and it works perfectly, literally rendering this entire product obsolete.
Unless of course you need Amazon to tell you how to read fanfiction.
