Wemms, Michael, Ed.
In "What Use Are Authors?" David Holbrook explores some of the problems authors are faced with in our society. The relationship between the small bookshop and the publisher is examined by Martyn Goff in: "The Problems of the Small Bookseller." Tom Woolston discusses the woes of the library suppliers in his talk: "Library Supply." A look at the paperback book industry is presented by William Miller in: "Paperback Publishing Today." The problems of copyright are considered in the final two papers: "Copyright - The Technical Problems," by Michael Humphreys and "Copyright, the International Problems," by Roy Yglesias. A brief professional background for each of the contributors is included. (NH)
