Precis Intermedia Selling Softcover Compilation of 2013 One Page Dungeon Contest on Amazon.com

WTF!?!

As a submitter and a winner in the 2013 contest, I was startled this evening to find this:

The One Page Dungeon Contest 2013 Softcover

and this:

The One Page Dungeon Contest 2012 Softcover

What the fuck is going on here Alex Schroder Schroeder (listed as "author") and Brett M. Bernstein (listed as "compiler")?

Both are listed as being published by Precis Intermedia.

Yes, it's perfectly legal to do this, as the entries were submitted under a Creative Common Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license. But it still would have been nice to be notified.

This is seriously a dick move. If Alex is making money off of the community efforts, I'm going to be seriously pissed.

So, Alex--what is going on here?

EDIT:

As you can read in the comments below, Alex finally responded to my queries:
