The new edition of The Hot Sheet includes a consideration of censorship in the US and how frequently it relates to the lack of diversity that characterizes the publishing industry. There's also an intriguing number on how many titles were self-published in 2015, based on a newly derived figure from Bowker, the US ISBN agency.
