Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News

* love the new Spaniel Rage cover from Vanessa Davis; that book is due in Febuary, and is a reprint of her first. That looks like an Arno cover or something of that general era.

* I think I reported that the First Second iteration of Jason Shiga's Demon was going to be two volumes. Make that multiple volumes. I'd say three, because that's a third there, but I want to protect myself. I think that one will eventually do its best as a single-volume. I'm sure I'm not alone in that.

* finally, there will be bunch of mainstream announcements at NYCC, and the show with which I'm involved, CXC, hopes to have one or two. We seem to be moving rapidly towards a time where these kind of announcements don't matter. I'm not sure why that is. Certainly anticipation culture is a big part of most media. I think it may be that there's just so much pretty good stuff right now; it's so hard to keep up with the present, there's no mental room to process books that aren't here yet as a result.
