The Literary Market in the UK collects material which emerged in the wake of a highly successful lecture series of the same title, presented at the University of Tuebingen in summer term 2011. Given the enthusiastic response to the lecture series, a book project was entertained for a while until unforeseen circumstances, other commitments, and, most of all, the intensity of change in the publishing world made it impossible to produce anything wellrounded, systematic and fast enough in the old medium of the book that could possibly do justice to recent developments in the literary field; the plan, alas, had to be abandoned. Viewed with some distance, however, it seems that some of the material that was gathered and produced in this context might be of some value for future research, and so the present e-publication presents a mixture of academic essays and interviews with actors in the literary market in the hope of offering coordinates of systematic access and a glimpse of the rapid changes under way in the world of publishing in the UK between, roughly, 2010 and 2014.
