There's been some contraction in the publishing industry of late, but this doesn't make any damn sense at all.
Firing Sara Nelson from Publisher's Weekly is a bit like firing John Lennon (and only John Lennon) from the Beatles.
Forgive the inside baseball, but Publishers Weekly is the acknowledged bible of the industry and has been for decades.
Whenever anything of importance happens, it was Sara Nelson who was on top of it.
Unbelievable and terribly shortsighted, this.
