Great Regulars: Amazon's programs saw the e-book was

being offered free, figured that was a new price, and cut Amazon's own price to zero.

Byliner saw that and took After Friday Night Lights off Amazon. In a statement released Monday, Byliner said it "felt that a price of zero devalued Buzz's work and simply wasn't what we're about." [Buzz] Bissinger was contacted for this story and declined comment, but he did tweet that "it is shame when After FNL is doing well, book no longer avail. and both Boobie and I deprived of royalties."
