New Yorker Drops Second Fiction Issue

newyorker2323.jpgNew Yorker editor David Remnick told WWD that they are dropping the winter fiction issue this year, substituting an issue dedicated to the theme of “world changers.” There will still be one annual fiction issue.

The change was driven by economics, according to the article: “Ad pages rose more than 50 percent for the issue, making it the biggest of the year. Chanel, Prada and Louis Vuitton are among the fashion advertisers and the automotive category has seven more pages than last year, thanks to BMW, Acura, Ford, Cadillac and Toyota. Total ad pages for ‘world changers’ is almost 69, compared with 45 for last year’s winter fiction issue.”

Nevertheless, the missing fiction issue will leave a hole in the literary world. This GalleyCat editor remembers many happy years riding airplanes and buses home to Michigan while reading this winter fiction issue. Thanks to Afterword for the link.
