Who are the intermediaries in the communications circuit and the book supply chain? What is the scope of their impact on the book as an object, and how do their actions fit in with those of other intermediaries within the book supply chain? These are the questions guiding this special issue, which focuses on the nature of collective work and action in the world of literature.
