SHPAWN OF SHATAN SHPEAKSH
Interesting interview with Scott Pack, former buying manager at Waterstone's. He also has a new blog, on which he gives his reasons for quitting. Pack was seen by many book and book-trade people in something akin to the way politics junkies view Peter Mandelson. This may or may not have been fair - at least he writes very well.
I have rejigged links - simply too many of them. Have removed the political stuff, which I hadn't looked at in ages. If and when I become politically active in the real world again, then they'll come back.
