September 25, 2009|Associated Press

The man who published "The Da Vinci Code" is resigning.

Stephen Rubin, a publishing executive since 1984 whose authors have included Dan Brown, John Grisham and Pat Conroy, said Thursday that he was stepping down as executive vice president and publisher-at-large of Random House Inc., effective Oct. 2.

"I have had the privilege of publishing and working closely with some of the greatest authors in the world," said Rubin, 67.

He said he planned to write a book and was exploring "some very exciting new opportunities in publishing."

Rubin declined further comment. His agent, Robert F. Levine, said the book was about classical music but declined to say which publisher was involved.
