Soft Skull Press to become an Imprint

It looks like our buddies at Soft Skull are being bought by a larger company according to Locus Magazine.

From a June 2007 Locus Magazine report:

Independent Publisher Soft Skull Press has been sold to Winton, Shoemaker & LLC, which also recently purchased the Counterpoint imprint from Perseus Book Group. Soft Skull publisher Richard Nash will become executive editor at the new company and will be editorial director of the Soft Skull imprint.

This is part of the PGW bankruptcy fall out which has put a strain on many small presses who where distributed by them. Well, it's better to be an imprint than no-print, knamean! Good luck to them. They are a great press and I hope that can sell even more of their titles.
