Go Read This | Introduction to The Conversation

I’m pretty sure this is a good idea. It’s like Tor.com for politics and current affairs. Smart and well led by the looks of things. Vertical niches folks, vertical niches!!

This is a new experiment at Random House, an effort to explore whether we can hold an engaging conversation online about different books that we think may shed light on what’s going on in the world right now. The suggestions and the essays will not be limited to Random House books, or to new books, but to any title that strikes us as relevant and worthwhile.
