- Steven D. Hill and Peggy Hogan have created a new non-fiction packaging house, called Flying Point Press (allied with Sterling Publishing) releasing titles aimed at the 10-to 15-year-old boy reader. First up are the 1950s Landmark books (including Invasion: The Story of D-Day, Lawrence of Arabia, and The Deadly Hunt: The Sinking of the Bismarck, among others). David Mehegan covers the story for the Boston Globe.
