Interesting tidbit

I found this in my Publisher's Lunch newsletter today and I thought it would be good to share. I'm interested to see what type of books get bought by it.

From Publisher's Lunch, September 11, 2008:
"Harper UK is starting a new science fiction imprint, Angry Robot, launching in July 2009. Former publisher of Games Workshop's Solaris and Black Library imprints Marc Gascoigne is running the new line, reporting to managing director Amanda Ridout. Taking a place alongside Harper's Voyager imprint, the new label "will be building the next wave of authors," Gascoigne says. They plan to sell print and digital versions directly from their website in addition to standard retail channels."

Because I'm an incorrigible market hound, I had to go looking for more information.

Here's the news release from the HarperCollins website:

Thanks, Jenny! This looks interesting.

Dang. The URL didn't all show. Well, they have a link to it from the home page of www.harpercollins.co.uk

Hope people find this helpful. Sorry for mucking up my previous comment.
