First up from The Bookseller is the mildly amusing story of The Claude Glass by writer Tom Bullough, who was wrongly named as the winner of the Wales Book of the Year award, the book is apparently "flying off the shelves". Good luck to him!

Also according to Bookseller: Bookshops resist high street slump which is good news, although sales are definitely down, some commentators are suggesting, they're not as bad as some statistics suggest, and reports a strong second quarter.

Ex-Helix writers have set up Transcriptase to host reprints of their work. The site has word from the following authors:

  • Elizabeth Barrette
  • Beth Bernobich
  • Maya Bohnhoff
  • Eugie Foster
  • Sara Genge
  • Samantha Henderson
  • Janis Ian
  • N.K. Jemisin
  • Vylar Kaftan
  • Ann Leckie
  • Yoon Ha Lee
  • Margaret Ronald
  • Jennifer Pelland
  • Vaughan Stanger
  • Rachel Swirsky

That's it for this week's edition of Fridayitis.

Have a great weekend!
