So many authors were stranded, left unpaid and unable to sell their books or get the rights back.
I’m happy for them.
I’m also interested in seeing the Dorchester back-list back on sale. That should be great for readers.

Literary agent Richard Curtis, writing at Digital Book World, points to the announcement of an auction for Dorchester’s assets. At the auction, Amazon Publishing will act as the stalking-horse bidder and will purchase Dorchester’s assets unless another bidder comes forward with a better offer.
Amazon Publishing would buy Dorchester’s entire backlist and customer list and would pay Dorchester authors any outstanding royalties they are owed.
