Publishers rush to sell already free Mueller report
The intrigue: Scribner, Melville House and Skyhorse Publishing are among those planning to have paperbacks out before the end of the month, with prices ranging from $15 for the Scribner book to $9.99 for the Melville House one.
The state of play: Skyhorse editorial director Mark Gompertz said celebrity attorney Alan Dershowitz, a Trump defender, was "the fastest reader and writer we have ever worked with," and was expected to finish an introduction by last night.
- The Scribner book, expected to exceed 700 pages, is being prepared in conjunction with The Washington Post. A combination of Post reporters and professional narrators will work on an audio edition.
The long view: The Warren Commission report on the JFK assassination and the 9/11 Commission Report became best sellers.
- The 9/11 report was nominated for a National Book Award.
