Samhain and Kensington Publishing Co Venture Axed
It was over a year ago, I think, that Samhain and Kensington announced that Samhain would produce a mass market imprint under the Kensington flag. Lynne Connolly broke the news that the venture is no longer going forward:
“By mutual agreement Kensington and Samhain have dissolved our co-venture agreement. Current circumstances being what they do not make it conducive for the launch of a new print program. Once things settle we can revisit the idea of working together.”
Coming on the heels of the Linden Bay purchase, you have to wonder what direction Samhain is going to take.
