US science fiction publisher Meisha Merlin is to close its doors.
They've posted a message on their home page which says:
"I am sorry to say that due to major distribution problems Meisha Merlin Publishing, Inc. will be closing their doors in May 2007. Both Kevin and I along with the entire staff here at Meisha Merlin want to thank all our fans, customers, authors, & artist for your support over the past eleven years. We are sorry to have to do this, but events beyond our control have forced us to make this decision.
ATTN: For those of you who have purchased The Virginia Edition. The Robert A. & Virginia Heinlein Prize Trust has worked out an agreement to continue publishing The Virginia Edition. You can expect a letter from them within
the very near future & volume seven will be arriving to you in late May or early June."
I don't think Meisha Merlin ever sent SFcrowsnest a review copy during their firm's period of operations. Our 543,688 readers probably don't buy SFF books, I guess. Draw your own conclusions.
