I don't usually post about current events, but thoughts and prayers go out to the survivors and the families of the wounded and dead as a result of the bombings in London today. It is a barbaric, cowardly act.
I did check in with friends in London and am happy to report that, among others, Mark Roberts, Claire Weaver, Jay Caselberg, Peter Lavery (and the rest of the Pan Macmillan staff) are all fine.
Some further details on Claire's blog.
Mark writes, "It’s horrible. Although, has to be said...the main response from London appears to be: fuck ‘em, let’s get on with it."
London's one of my favorite cities in the world--perhaps my favorite--and, along with New York, represents the Western hub of the publishing universe to me. A lot of fond memories of London, and I hate to think of it under siege like this--the bombings and then the fear that comes after.
