And here is publishing world round-up for this week:

  • James Freyed by agent who sez ‘trust broken’ – Kassie Evashevski of Brillstein-Grey dumped James Frey. Turns out he lied to her, too.
  • Kate Rogers moves to Mountaineers Books as editor-in-chief.
  • National Lampoon Plans to Yuk it Up in Print
  • – National Lampoon, not satisfied with the highly-lucrative direct-to-video market opens an publishing division. Ten to twelve titles annuallly, distribution by Holtzbrinck, presumably funny.

  • Juliet Ulman was named senior editor at Bantam Dell.
  • Per Publisher’s Lunch: “At Harcourt, editor-in-chief Becky Saletan has been promoted, given the additional title of associate publisher.”

That was a dull week, wasn’t it?
