I always enjoy a touch of schadenfreude -- who doesn't -- and this story makes me feel for the 37 Signals crew. My normal suspicion would be that the big publisher made all their advance back on the first printing, after which they don't actually have much further interest. 10,000 copies of a $27 book and a mid six-figure advance? Yes, that could be it.
