biogs coming from Amazon

Courtesy of Publishers Weekly, here's an announcement regarding a new series of short biogs from Amazon. Looks good. Hopefully women will be included.


Amazon Publishing has unveiled a new series called Icons that will feature short biographies of significant figures. Icons will, in its first year, feature 10 titles to be released on a bi-monthly schedule. The first Icons title, a biography of Jesus by Jay Parini, is on track for a December 2013 publication. Amazon said it will be hiring "celebrated authors" to write about "canonical figures." To that end, the subjects to be covered in the first year of the series range from Stalin to David Lynch to J.D. Salinger to Alfred Hitchcock.
