Kirkus Lives!

According to Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus Reviews has gotten a new lease on life:

In an email to colleagues today, Kirkus Reviews managing editor and nonfiction editor Eric Liebetrau said the publication, which last month was said to be closing with staff leaving by the end of 2009, is working toward an arrangement with an acquiring company to continue publication.

I enjoyed the conceit of having a starred review in Kirkus' final issue, but I'm glad that the magazine will survive.
