Кто станет издателем?

The AAA constitution says anyone employed by a publisher should not be eligible for membership. Piers Blofeld of Sheil Land said the AAA should reflect the “fast-changing landscape” of publishing. He said: “There are obvious issues and potential conflicts of interest, but at heart the role of an agent is to offer advice and support to a writer on their writing career. We’re here to maximise their earnings. We’re not simply there to act as an interface between authors and publishers—that landscape has gone.

Ещё одна проблема наступающего «цифрового разрыва» в книгоиздании — изменение роли литературного агента и издателя. В новой ситуации функцию издателя, в сущности, может брать на себя и агент писателя, хотя это и противоречит уставу Американской ассоциации литагентов и прежней логике индустрии. Но такой крупный игрок рынка электронных книг, как Amazon, понимая именение расклада сил, стремится иметь дело с агентами, а не издателями.
