Forbidden Planet has hired Joe Gordon, "the blogger famously sacked last year by his employer Waterstone's [a U.K. bookseller] for comments made about the company" on his blog, The Woolamaloo Gazette. His new job at the sf-related megachain is to "improve their graphic novels and SF books side of the business".
