Flurry of coverage from THR podcast story

I was not expecting the news release McClelland & Stewart issued yesterday morning to attract as much media attention as it did. The idea was simply to announce that M&S would, for the first time, release a book (in this case, The High Road) in a serialized, chapter by chapter format, as a podcast, as I did with The Best Laid Plans back in 2007. And that it would be available for free. The President of M&S, Doug Pepper, was interviewed and the stories started rolling in from across Canada. In a spasm of self-indulgence, here’s a quick selection preserved on the blog for posterity’s sake.
