John Sterling is stepping down as president and publisher of Henry Holt after nine years in the position, and will become executive vice president and editor-at-large at Macmillan, Holt's parent company. Sterling leaves the helm after a record-breaking year for Holt in terms of sales, profits, and bestsellers.
Random House Publishing Group announced today that Daniel Menaker will step down as executive editor in chief at the end of this month.

In his introduction to The Anchor Book of New American Short Stories, editor Ben Marcus writers, "If we are made by what we read, if language truly builds people into what they are, how they think, the depth with which they feel, then these stories are, to me, premium material for that construction project. You could build a civilization with them." The 473-page anthology includes stories by George Saunders, David Foster Wallace, Anthony Doerr, Jhumpa Lahiri, Anne Carson, Gary Lutz, and more than 20 others.
