Most interesting . . .
I woke up to an e-mail from someone working at Tor. My correspondent begged that I not say anything that could lead to his/her/its identification, for fear of retaliation, but provided details that allowed me to confirm his/her/its identity and position there. A certain amount of 'inside info' was provided, and I'm promised more such information from a second correspondent later today.
This isn't by any means the same as an official communication from either Tor or Macmillan, but it's intensely interesting nonetheless, and may have a bearing on my future decisions. I'll put up an article this evening with whatever I can share that won't identify my sources. Let's just say that if the information provided so far is correct, there appears to be a fair amount of sturm und drang in Tor's upper echelons right now, and things are being shaken up to a considerable degree. This is not being greeted with unalloyed sorrow lower down the food chain there, where a soupçon of schadenfreude is helping the medicine go down.
Watch this space . . .
