Amazon's e-War Suffers Another Casualty

Amazon's e-book war against Apple took another blow Tuesday.

An exclusive e-book deal between Amazon.com and the agent for such classics as "Invisible Man" is no longer exclusive, and no longer a deal.
     
Random House Inc. and the Wylie Agency announced Tuesday that "Invisible Man," "Rabbit Is Rich" and more than a dozen other works were being "removed" from a program brokered between Wylie and Amazon that offered them as e-books available only through the online retailer.

Instead, Random House, which had claimed electronic rights, will publish the books on a "non-exclusive basis." The original deal had enraged publishers and rival booksellers and led to Random House suspending business with Wylie.
