An unintentional comment on the state of the publishing industry

The lead story at Locus Online right now, in its entirety, is this:

Del Rey editor Liz Scheier was laid off yesterday and will be joining the growing ranks of newly unemployed editors — her position at the company officially ends January 23, 2009. Get more news like this in each monthly issue of Locus Magazine — Subscribe!

Sadly, that’s probably exactly right. We’ll see many more news stories very much in the same vein in the months to come.

My heart goes out to Liz and all the others being let go.
