A beast eating itself, perhaps

I know it's a disgusting image, but it's what came to mind while I read this NY Observer article by Leon Neyfakh about Collins' new president and publisher, Andy Ross, and how his big ambitious changes, including the hiring of many aggressive editors for the imprint, has caused some questions over who acquires what in the giant many-headed beast that is Harpercollins. Has the ship become too unwieldy with all the captains?

The article offers some nice insider-baseball info and is worth a read, even if you're not cackling, knee-slapping, and carrying on as I may have been at points. Thanks to Publishers Lunch for link.
