Walter Zacharius, R.I.P.

Walter Zacharius founded Kensington and supported imprints branching out into Spanish language, gay/lesbian and African American specialties. Zacharius turned down an aquisition offer from Harlequin, thus steering away from the development of a near monopoly on mass market romance. He never baulked from publishing erotic fiction including the "Man From O.R.G.Y" series. Walter Zacharius passed away yesterday at the age of 87.
