Conflict between Barnes & Noble and Simon & Schuster continues

Simon & Schuster is losing sales and promotions at the biggest book chain in the U.S. While the retailer is still carrying the publisher's biggest books in quantity, titles by lesser-known authors have been cut sharply, said the people familiar with the matter. Orders for some titles have been reduced by as much as 90%, according to one literary agent.

Those familiar with the disagreement who spoke on condition of anonymity because the negotiations are confidential say Barnes & Noble believes that because its physical display space is so important to publishers, and because it is the last major retail chain remaining, publishers should be doing more to support it. Barnes & Noble has told Simon & Schuster, a senior executive said, that at least one other publisher has accepted these new terms.
