I kept hoping this was a joke, but...no.

It doesn't seem to be.

I'm not even clicking on it. I don't need that in my browser history.

But I saw Simon mention it. I can't think of a punishment that is too harsh for whatever jackwagon thought this up.

It's absolutely repulsive, but I had a thought. It might be a setup, a sort of 'honeypot' for the authorities to use to see who is viewing the book and/or buying it.

But should it be banned? Unless it crosses clear laws, I don't think that anything can be done about it or SHOULD be done about it.
If we ban one book because of content, no matter how disgusting (and yes I find this disgusting/repulsive/sickening) then how soon will it be justified to ban other books because of content. I am sure there are a lot of books, stories, anthologies that people would like to have banned.
We can do our part and click that we find it inappropriate, but as to banning it and Amazon, that is not for us to decide.

Shadow, I agree with you. And quite honestly, if its existence allows the authorities to catch just one pedophile, then the book, however distasteful and horrifying, remaining on the site is of worth.

Blah! I wish I had known what this was before I clicked on it. Hate to see what Amazon suggests for me next...
