Wrox Red is Gone


Wrox, the geek book publisher, is changing the look of their books. Looking at the comments, some are not happy with moving away from the yearbook look, but I, for one, am glad.

It works for me Jim (Minatel, that is, an acquisitions editor at Wrox). Link to original story.

Peace and Grace,
