Publisher Random House has reorganised its empire with the dismantling of the Bantam Dell and Doubleday imprints. The latter was home to Dan Brown, so now he will become part of the Knopf imprint led by publisher Sonny Mehta. GalleyCat believes this might actually be a positive for fans of Dan Brown:
This means that we might actually see 'The Solomon Key' sometime in 2009, maybe 2010 at the latest. Because Sonny Mehta can get that book out of Dan Brown if he has to lock himself into a hotel room with the guy and collect the manuscript pages as they come out of the typewriter, just like he did to coax 'So Long, And Thanks for All the Fish' out of Douglas Adams.
We shall see...
