I assume that a struggling economy is going make life difficult for a number of small publishers, not to mention the major publishing houses. Cumberland House looks like it is the first to succumb. Sourcebooks Inc., an independent publisher based in Naperville, Ill., assumed rights to the titles and an additional nine books that haven’t been released, plus the Cumberland House name and Web site under the deal that closed this week. That’s good news for those of you still looking to collect all of their titles in the “May I Quote You…” series.
Goodbye Cumberland House
