Yesterday, Amazon finally took out the SEARCH INSIDE THIS BOOK feature for The Dark Descent (ed. David G. Hartwell), The Ascent of Wonder (ed. David G. Hartwell & Kathryn Cramer), and Visions of Wonder (ed. Hartwell & Milt Wolf), as per our request the Monday after the program debuted.
You can find out most of you might reasonably want to know about The Ascent of Wonder prior to buying it from my own site, which includes my introduction, David's introduction, and all of our story notes in their entirety with extensive hypertextual linking.
A number of Ellen Datlow's anthologies remain searchable, despite her requests that they be removed from the program. (As far as I know, one of the authors in Vanishing Acts is the one who raised the alarm about whole stories being readable online. He searched Amazon on his own name on the very first day and discovered that one could read his whole story in Vanishing Acts on Amazon. He went through the roof and requested that Ellen do something about it immediately. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for Amazon to remove Ellen's books from the program.
