The Wylie literary agency is causing a stir in the publishing industry following its announcement of a two year agreement to sell ebooks only through Amazon. The works in question are apparently governed by old publishing contracts in which the authors didn't expressly grant electronic rights to the print publishers (because electronic rights didn't exist at the time). The books include Updike's Rabbit novels, The Stories of John Cheever, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat.
