Kirkus Resurrected

According to memos by managing editor Eric Liebetrau, Kirkus Reviews is restarting publication, with “a buyer in the works” and the sale to be completed in the next two to three weeks. Nielsen Business Media announced late last year its plan to shut down both trade magazines Kirkus Reviews and Editor & Publisher, however the prognosis for the publications is much improved as of early 2010. Kirkus will publish a second issue in January, and staffers of Editor & Publisher have launched an exile blog while awaiting the possible sale.
