Author Alice Munro says she might change her mind about retiring, but her publisher has serious doubts.

Munro hinted at returning to writing short stories when she won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature this week. 

But Douglas Gibson, her publisher and editor since 1976, says he’s certain that’s not going to happen.

Gibson notes that Munro is now 82, in frail health, and she lost her husband in April.  And she hasn’t been writing at all.

Gibson says he’s not sure if Munro will be able to attend the Nobel award ceremony in Stockholm in December.
