HCI's Firings: Bitter Soup for the Laid-Off

Publishers Weekly reports this morning that medium-sized press HCI Communications -- best known for creating the inexplicably popular and ever-expanding "Chicken Soup" series of anthologies -- has canned 35 employees. The losses are all in the manufacturing and production end; no sales or editorial jobs were lost.

No word as to whether the ex-employees were offered chicken soup as a severance package.

So now's the time to pitch them a Chicken Soup for the Poor Laid-Off Bastard's Soul, I guess...
