The Long-Awaited Liberation of Rachel Griffin
It is with great enthusiasm that I report that my esteemed editor, L. Jagi Lamplighter, has regained all rights to her work from her former publisher, Tor Books.
Jagi has stated that her rights reversion has been in the works for over a year. It had nothing to do with recent controversies between various Tor employees and authors over the Hugo Awards. I, for one, look forward to seeing what Jagi's new publisher, Chameleon, has planned for her Rachel Griffin and Prospero books.
And while the paroxysms that have been shaking traditional publishing lately don't deserve full credit for this boon to Jagi's career, the two events are related. If nothing else, the loss of yet another excellent author to small press or indie brings the inevitable collapse of legacy publishing one small step closer.
