re: MacMillan dicking over Libraries- The situation
@phobos_dthorga MacMillan is one of the big five publishing houses in a good chunk of the world, and like all of them, they have a gajillion imprints. (Tor would probably be the best known thing of theirs on Mastodon)
Everyone has their own E-book leasing setup as you can see below, but only MacMillan is proposing this.
Does that help?
@phobos_dthorga Tor the sci/fi fantasy imprint.
If you're curious, wikipedia has more imprints you might be familiar with
@lapis Ohh, so that's what an 'imprint' is! I was able to look it up now:
"An imprint is the name of the publisher, the place of publication and the date, usually printed on the title page of a book."
I think I'll bookmark this Toot :)
