(I searched but didn't see this posted anywhere on AW. I'm also not sure if I posted this in the right forum, so please forgive me if it's misplaced.)

I have no other details, I just saw the link posted at SF Site News. Is there some kind of weird escape clause the publisher used to get out of the contract? It just seems odd that they would have been able to legally get out of a contract over something as innocuous as an author's bio blurb.
