    Q. Is it true that the publishing industry is on the verge of collapse?

    A. Yes, perpetually.

    A. Probably not.

    Publishing is a marginal industry that's vulnerable to external changes, and is therefore always mutating. This state of affairs has prevailed for centuries. I don't know whether the rumors that publishing is on the verge of collapse go back that far, but I wouldn't be surprised. I've certainly been hearing them the entire time I've worked in the industry.

    Note: this does not guarantee that publishing won't someday collapse. It just means you should take such rumors with a big ol' grain of salt.
