Whole lotta Shakin' Going On

Carroll & Graf Press and Thunder's Mouth Press are to be dropped! They were recently acquired by the Perseus Book Group (via the fall out of the PGW bankruptcy) and now Perseus will drop them both. According to a Locus Magazine report 24 out of a staff of 91 people will be fired. Indigocafe.com doesn't carry a lot of Carroll & Graf but we do look to Thunder's Mouth Press for a lot of our music titles. It's unsettling to watch this shakeout happening in the book industry. I will continue to monitor the going's on in the book world to the best of my meager ability.

Terrible news, right? I freelanced for one of the axed staff at TMP -- it sounded like things were pretty rough since the Perseus acquisition. Wonder what the other ugly ripples will be from the PGW bankruptcy?
