The Silver Eel

"A gape-jawed serpentine shape of pale metal crested with soot hung high for a sign."

Really rather worrying news from a story on BoingBoing about a - perhaps the - U.S. book distributor being closed down for bankruptcy. The comments about an Enron-style culture within it, and about how this can be considered an example of monopoly capitalism, make interesting reading.

I'd like to say I came across it while reading BoingBoing, but it was through a link on Publishing News.

Ah, see we cool webkids hang out on Boing Boing all the time and swap the occassional email with Cory :-) Actually got the work blog plugged there this week when I sent them a link to the BSFA shortlist nominees and they ran it, so nice plug for FPI but better plug for the awards, win-win all round - BB is a good place to get linked from, hopefully it will make some folks want to read some of the books (predictably M John Harrison's sequel to Light, Nova Swing, and JCG's End of the World Blues are in there, both very tasty reads).
