Yes the rumors are true; the recently defunct Hogshead Publishing has risen from the ashes under new management. Mark Ricketts, an industry new comer, has purchased the former powerhouse from head hog, James Wallis (although after Wallis had sold off all of the important properties that Hogshead owned). Even though Hogshead will not be publishing the games that made them famous they will be retaining their full-time production editor, Carol Johnson, who has been working at Hogshead since 2000. In the full press release, the new company has announced its intention to join the OGL fracas. You can read the entire press release here.
