It’s hard to know what to write about after the past few days. My thoughts are less with books and the business of publishing than with those who have been (and still will be) affected by Sandy. PW’s e-mail was knocked out by the storm, and we are still trying to get fully operational, so please excuse us if you have tried to get in touch and we haven’t responded. For information on publishers and related businesses in and around New York, there is a run-down of who is open and who is not in today’s PW Daily. If you have breaking news, you can reach our news department at It will be a while before life returns to a semblance of normal in the wake of the Super Storm. Meanwhile, for those of us who pray, now would be a good time.
