Say It Ain’t So!

Just read in Publishers Weekly that Richard Nash is stepping down as editorial director of Soft Skull Press.

He said he was grateful for the reprieve Counterpoint gave to Soft Skull’s writers and readers, but said, “It is time to let Soft Skull move onto the next phase of its existence, and to allow me to take on the new challenges our industry is facing.”

I wish Richard luck in whatever new venture he begins. He’s a literary light as far as I’m concerned.
