Interviews | September 01, 1984


Our staff of about twenty in house editors reads just about everything under contract to major houses, as well as books from a number of small presses and university presses.  We all read: management reads, the heads of the different clubs read.  We also have free-lance readers and if something seems interesting intrinsically or is written by a writer we know about and are interested in for literary or commercial reasons or the occasional happy combinaton, it makes its way either into the weekly editorial meeting or to the judges who now meet every three weeks.
