Sunday Times Round-Up Addendum

One item I forgot to mention in the previous post: The Times Book Review section today features an article on backlist books and the so-called “Long Tail” exploited by on-line sales. It has some interesting stuff on the business of publishing and the sales of backlist books.

As with the medical story referenced in the previous post, I’d be interested to hear what any of the publishing types out there think of this. As an outsider, it sounds interesting enough, but it could be horribly inaccurate, and I’d never be able to tell.
