Simon & Schuster is launching a new imprint for science fiction, fantasy, and horror! Jon Anderson, Executive Vice President and Publisher of S&S Children’s Publishing will oversee the new project, which will publish books aimed at all ages. The imprint, which hasn’t been named yet, will be headed up by Justin Chandra and Joe Monti, with Navah Wolfe as editor.
Simon & Schuster has published SFF authors in the past, including Anne McCaffrey and Ursula K. Le Guin, but Anderson decided it was time for the publisher to have a dedicated imprint.
They plan to publish between 12 and 15 titles each year, possibly beginning in Fall 2014. The imprint will also publish in digital formats, and some current SFF works may be moved under the new imprint’s umbrella.
