The Case of the Blogging Bookseller

Joe Gordon, a long-time employee of the Edinburgh branch of British book-selling chain Waterstone's, was sacked last week for making a few snarky comments on his blog about his experiences at work. I've known Joe for several years as a result of his enthusiastic and able work for the company: organising and presenting readings and signings by many SF/F authors, and making the SF/F section of the store as inviting and informed as any specialist SF bookshop. I'm outraged. So is Charlie Stross, who says all that has to be said about this.
