More consolidation in book publishing.

More consolidation in book publishing. Today Publishers Group West was bought by Advanced Marketing. PGW was the largest distributor of indy publishers in the US. They've distributed everything from pot-growing manuals to Dennis Cooper. If, in months to come, you see even less risk at your local superstore, don't be suprised.

God bless 'em - Charlie's a good man and PGW throws great parties. Let's hope AMS doesn't clamp down on the bashes.

This is why you should support small indie publishers like So New Media, whose only goal it to publish good books by cool people.
