News Tidbits and Tittles

The January issue of Locus has the following interesting news item:

"HarperStudio, a new imprint at HarperCollins, has made an arrangement to sell books to Borders on a non-returnable basis, so the books cannot be sent back to the publisher for credit. In exchange, Borders will get a better discount (reportedly 58% to 63%), and will probably order fewer copies initially. It's an interesting experiment, and publishing insiders will be watching closely to see how it works out."
