Yes. The LNH20 launch is a success on that criteria at least.
However, I would caution against automatically assuming that is a
long term indicator. I've noticed a similar statistical aretefact in the
past - for several years running Dvandom put of a single LNH story
that similarly raised the stats on the number of writers.
The LNH imprints all share a powerful storytelling flexibility because
of their anarachic, parody nature. It allows people to dip in briefly
and post stories as inspiration takes them. But ultimately I try to
keep in mind that different writers have diferent preferences for
what imprints they primarily work for. Resting on laurels would
probably be a bad idea.
