McSweeney's Publisher Is Yesterday's News

Categories: Media
-30- for Panorama publisher...
Oscar Villalon, the longtime former Chronicle book editor who accepted a buyout and then went to work as McSweeney's publisher has abruptly exited that position, SF Weekly has learned.

It is unclear at whose behest Villalon left McSweeney's, just after shepherding the much-covered Panorama newspaper project into huge, heavy, glossy, reality. Villalon only began working for Dave Eggers' operation back in September of last year.

Messages for Villalon have not yet been returned. Our messages for McSweeney's haven't either -- but the chipper folks picking up the phone did inform us that "Oscar doesn't work here any more."
