- Regnery Publishing doesn’t care about hack people!
‘Shorter’ concept created by Daniel Davies and perfected by Elton Beard. Hanxxors: Kevin Drum.
Gavin adds: There’s more going on here than the Times story says. Regnery authors benefit enormously from this system: It provides guaranteed royalties on all those internally-shifted books, plus (and the Times knows this) Regnery is notorious for massive bulk-ordering from within the retail system, a practice designed to push titles onto the Times Bestseller List in the absence of actual large retail sales. (The Times marks books with significant bulk sales with a † symbol.)
The discovery stage in this case promises to be very interesting.
