Top 50 players in the world of (UK) publishing

Robert McCrum in the Guardian. It's a fun list, I'm glad to see Pete Ayrton of Serpent's Tail making a prominent appearance; and some other good Serpent's Tail coverage in Louise France's 'posh porn' piece (I've got Emily Maguire's Taming the Beast here near the top of a TBR pile).

I got a great packet of books from Serpent's Tail last week, it reminded me of why I love their aesthetic so much--their website is currently under reconstruction, I'll link when it's all up again (and I think I'm going to be writing short author-appreciations about Charlie Williams and Heather Lewis, it's a new feature for the all-new site), but they really publish the most amazing stuff, I am super-proud to have made it onto their list with Heredity. The person I'm really gearing up for reading is Heather Lewis, only I am waiting for a weekend where I feel really stoical and in good mental health, the only one of hers I've read so far was fairly mind-bending. Also I'm having to sort "read now" out from "read after I'm back in NY," mostly based on whether they are things due back to the library/on loan to people here; and the work reading must take priority, too, for the next few weeks. More TK, in any case.
