Okay, this goes out to any of you who use Amazon.

Earlier on this week, Amazon.com pulled the sales ranking of a hell of a lot of LGBTQI books. What removing their sales ranks does is remove them from searches made on the site. So now, unless you know exactly what book you're looking for, you're screwed.

Mark R. Probst was the first to sound the alarm, and the form response to his enquiry can be seen at the link.

A full round-up can be found here, here and here.

There's a list of these books with no sales rank here.

Smart Bitches, Trashy Books has started a Google Bomb campaign, which at the time of writing was top search result on Google. Link to http://www.smartbitchestrashybooks.com/amazonrank with the anchor text "Amazon Rank". It should look like this: Amazon Rank
