Aw, crud! Margaret Clark is gone now, too.

I'm sure you all saw the story on the main page. Simon and Schuster downsized Margaret Clark out of a job. Thanks for all the hard work, Ms. Clark. Good luck in your future endeavors.

Who's left?

Margaret, best of luck...

I'm finding it interesting that the "careers" link on the Simon and Schuster website points to a broken link...

I hate to say this but I'm not sad one bit. I think she was leading Trek Lit in the wrong direction. Unfortunately it's probably too late to undo what she has done.

I'm really disappointed to hear that.

Good luck Margaret.

It's too early to know how this is all going to play out, but I don't see any way in which getting rid of two senior editors of Star Trek fiction in less than a year can be anything but bad news, regardless what you may think of their editorial decisions. If Margaret's gone, I can only wish her the best.

^That's true, but it's important to stress that this has nothing to do with Margaret's editorial performance or the sales of Trek books in general. As with Marco last year, this is part of a companywide round of layoffs at Simon & Schuster.

It stinks for anyone to have to lose their job like this. I wish Margaret well and hope she lands on her feet.

Agreed...we've already seen the ripple effect, in delays and cancellations, of Marco's layoff, so one tends to think that this layoff will exacerbate the matter.

Given what the movie has done for the franchise, this is terrible timing, even if that timing is coincidental.

If Margaret's gone, I can only wish her the best.
Seconded, of course.

Wow, and so soon after Marco. That's really surprising. It does seem reckless to shake things up twice in rapid succession.
