A Note from the Reacting Consortium Executive Director
I'm pleased to announce that W. W. Norton & Co. is officially our new publisher for the Reacting to the Past series, and will re-issue the nine published games under their imprint beginning this summer.
Norton is acquiring and will be selling the remaining overstock of Reacting books. Norton is also working to print up new copies of these games, but this will likely take some time. We must track down all of the old permissions (e.g. maps, articles, art), negotiate new fees, and finalize the contracts. In some instances this can be accomplished quickly; but in others, it may take some time.
Even before our annual Faculty Institute in June, W.W. Norton was already hard at work with the Reacting Consortium Editorial Board, chaired by Professor Nick Proctor of Simpson College, to devise a new template and format for new versions of Reacting games. We expect that that these will begin appearing in the summer of 2014.
We regret that this took so long to resolve, but we are looking forward to a new and fruitful partnership with W.W. Norton.
