this just in

Hachette Book Group USA has this morning sent out a press release stating that there will be a US launch of UK-based Orbit Books to be incorporated into Little, Brown Book Group (formerly, Time Warner Book Group). In the UK they publish such authors as Robert Jordan, Laurell K. Hamilton, Terry Brooks, Iain M. Banks, Tad Williams and Trudi Caravan. The US imprint plans to publish its first titles in 2007.

I have little as yet on submissions information or whether this will have any effect on Warner’s established imprint Aspect. I am hopeful that this will actually afford the US market an opportunity to expand the SF/F field.

One response to “this just in

  1. This will be interesting. Odd to see an SF/F imprint expanding these days.
