A blog about Bloomsbury Academic's 33 1/3 series, our other books about music, and the world of sound in general.

Sadly, not an April Fool's prank...

It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that Claire will be leaving Continuum at the end of this week. She has handled publicity for the 33 1/3 series for the last two years, and I can tell you from experience that managing 60+ authors on top of the rest of the workload is no simple task.

Chances are if you have read about a 33 1/3 book somewhere other than on this blog in the last couple years, or, for example, saw an author on the Colbert Report, Claire was the one who laid the groundwork that made it possible. She has done an amazing job behind the scenes, organizing the monthly 33 1/3 multimedia reading series at Barbes in Brooklyn and pulling together the soon-to-launch 33 1/3 newsletter…and we are really going to miss seeing her face around here.

Please join me in wishing her farewell and good luck!

Claire provided me with tons of help; who will replace her presence at Barbes?

Good luck Claire!

Thanks guys!
I'm going to really miss working with such an amazing set of books and the passionate and always interesting people who've created them and who love them. Keep it up.
