Publishing consolidation continues: Hachette buys Hyperion

“The publishing industry got a little smaller Friday when Hachette announced its plans to buy Hyperion, the adult imprint owned by the Walt Disney Co. Disney, under Disney Publishing Worldwide, will retain its children’s books. Hachette, formally known as Hachette Book Group, is one of six existing major publishers — a number that will be reduced to five after the pending merger of Penguin with Random House. And that might drop to four if a rumored deal between Simon & Schuster and HarperCollins comes to fruition.” (via LA Times.com)
