China ban on eight books modified

China censors have modified slightly their ban on eight books: booksellers will be allowed to continue selling the books until they are sold out, but cannot restock them. The modification comes amidst strong protest from bloggers over the banning. Writer Zhang Yihe, whose book is on the banned list, and whose previous books have been banned, wrote an open letter to the China government, demanding a lifting of the ban and an end to all censorship in the country.
