The publishing industry has been unusually quiet of late; almost everything that is "news" has revolved around warmed-over feuds between authors and such. Instead, everything has been about "who knew what when and how" over Iraq, al Q'aida, Afghantistan, etc. That is not to say that the latter is an unimportant inquiry, even though there is so much spin from everyone that discerning the "truth" is well-nigh impossible. It is only to say that April and May tend to have a lot of announcements (relatively, that is) of moves concerning high-profile editors from one publisher to another, and high-profile authors from one agent or publisher to another. Now that I've said this, no doubt there will be five or six this coming week!
