Condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the victims of this barbarous attack on freedom of expression. All of those involved in publishing are in mourning.
On a side note, well done to the Heinemann imprint of Cornerstone, which will go ahead with the UK publication of Michel Houellebecq’s novel Submission (published in France as Soumission). The novel imagines France under a Muslim president. The U.S. edition is due in September.
