James Frenkel No Longer With Tor

From the Twitter feed of Patrick Nielsen Hayden, an editor with Tor:

James Frenkel is no longer associated with Tor Books. We wish him the best. We’ll be contacting the authors and agents Mr. Frenkel worked with to discuss which editor here they’ll be working with going forward. This process will take some days or even weeks, so please be patient if you don’t hear from us instantly. Finally, if you had something on submission to Tor via Mr. Frenkel, you’ll need to resubmit it via some other Tor editor. If you don’t have a particular editor in mind, you can re-submit it via Diana Pho (diana.pho@tor.com) who will route it appropriately.

Hayden further clarified that things need to be re-submitted because they are not in Tor's possession right now.

You may remember that Frenkel had recently been formally--officially--reported for sexual harassment at WisCon and it came out that he'd been informally reported numerous times over the years.

Sometimes we win one. Reporting works!
