Having hacked his way through adversaries playing screen roles like Captain Jack Sparrow and Sweeney Todd, Johnny Depp will now be slicing into manuscripts (ideally with a red pen, and not with a cutlass or a razor blade) as he starts his own literary imprint.
The Harper imprint of HarperCollins Publishers said on Tuesday that it was creating a new list of books, called Infinitum Nihil, that will publish titles reflecting Mr. Depp’s eclectic tastes and interests…
…Mr. Depp, who has been known to pick up a guitar from time to time, said in a statement: “I pledge, on behalf of Infinitum Nihil, that we will do our best to deliver publications worthy of peoples’ time, of peoples’ concern. Publications that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet. For this dream realized, we would like to salute HarperCollins for their faith in us and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship together.”

The rock band Dinosaur Feathers wrote the catchiest Game of Thrones tribute that you will ever hear. After touring the country listening to George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series, the band wrote a tribute called “Please, please, George” (second track below) that pleads for the author to finish his latest book.
