This week has seen plenty publishing happenings at the Frankfurt Book Fair, as Children’s Publishing Goes Digital, there’s Epstein on the future of the publishing industry, and Mrs Book, can I introduce you to Mr Games?  You can read lots more from some familiar faces over at the blog.

Back in the UK, interesting moves are afoot as WH Smith launches ‘Kindle killer’, this of course being a deal with social reading leaders Kobo.

Amazon meanwhile have this to say to book publishers: “Welcome to the jungle, baby“. This as their new science fiction imprint launches — with Neal Stephenson, Greg Bear and Chris Roberson.

Dear Publishers: Please don’t pull a “Netflix” says Book Riot, and elsewhere there’s New Statistics and A Turning Point for the Publishing Industry to read all about.

And finally, there’s this fine Conversation Starter.
