HarperCollins Publishers New Zealand extends its sympathy to family of Sir Peter Williams QC, and particularly to his wife Lady Heeni. Everyone at the company has been saddened by his death. It has been a privilege to work with Sir Peter on his brilliant memoir, The Dwarf Who Moved and other remarkable tales from a life in the law, and we know it meant a lot to the author that the book went on to become a best seller.
‘Peter had a great heart and a big soul,’ said HarperCollins NZ Publisher Finlay Macdonald. ‘It was what made him probably the greatest criminal lawyer of his generation, but also what connected him to people from every walk of life.’
Sir Peter’s last public appearance was at the Auckland Writers Festival in May, where the audience filled the main auditorium, and his sessions ended with a standing ovation. ‘That was a mark of the man he was,’ said Macdonald, ‘and we know our sorrow is shared by a great many other New Zealanders.’
The Dwarf Who Moved and other remarkable tales from a life in the law (ISBN: 9781775540472) is available from HarperCollins.
This is an important announcement regarding the transfer of Ilex titles to Hachette Australia (HA), and Hachette New Zealand (HNZ).
Following the acquisition of Ilex by Octopus Publishing Group, a division of Hachette UK, HA and HNZ will be taking on the sales, marketing and distribution of the Ilex list, with effect from 1 July 2015. The arrangements concerning the transfer are as follows:
There will be no physical transfer of stock as Thames & Hudson (TH), HA and HNZ all distribute from Alliance Distribution Services (ADS). As a result, stock will be available immediately during the first week of July 2015.
Outstanding back orders for customers, placed with TH, will be maintained by ADS, and supplied at Hachette terms, unless customers advise ADS that they wish backorders to be cancelled.
Returns of all Ilex titles invoiced by ADS prior to 1 July 2015 (i.e. on behalf of TH) will be authorised under the prevailing ADS/TH returns terms until 30 September and such authorised returns will be credited provided they are received at ADS in mint/resalable condition no later than 31 October. After this date, ADS cannot accept returns of books invoiced prior to 1 July 2015.
The Hachette teams in Australia and New Zealand will sell-in new titles from July publication onwards, and new titles invoiced from the July cycle onwards will be supplied at existing Hachette trading terms.
Ilex and Octopus UK would like to take this opportunity to thank the Thames & Hudson team for their commitment to the Ilex list.
