Kirkus Will Publish January 1 Issue

File kirkus.jpgthis under the social media category of what eBookNewser covers, but to echo our sibling GalleyCat, Kirkus review has returned to Twitter after a week off to announce it will indeed publish its January 1st issue.

Here is what Kirkus posted on Twitter this morning: “To confirm 01/01/10 issue of Kirkus will be published & website is working fine. (please RT) Many thanks.”

This follows the December 10 announcement that both Kirkus Reviews and Editor & Publisher will cease publication, leaving a huge hole in the pre-pub life of books.
