Not my night for non-offence!!
It has been pointed out to me, offlist, that calling Scarecrow and LU
"polar opposites" gives the impression that Scarecrow is the lesser of the
two. Not so!!
Each has survived because of being polar opposites, though of course differences
among all the LIS imprints have blurred over the past 10 years.
Many fine editors work for both Scarecrow and LU. Bohdan Wynar had a hand in
training a number of them. Regardless, our field would be poorer without them.
