Tor.com is Seeking a Fiction Editor, Marketing Manager, and Publicity Manager

Tor.com is excited to announce that we will be expanding our original fiction program via a new imprint dedicated to publishing novellas, shorter novels, serializations, and any other pieces of fiction that exceed the traditional novelette length (17,499 words).

Each DRM-free title will be available exclusively for purchase, unlike the current fiction that is offered for free on the site, and will have full publisher support behind it. It will have a heavy digital focus but all titles will be available via POD and audio formats. We will also consider traditional print publishing for a select number of titles a year. All titles will be available worldwide.

We are using this opportunity to reevaluate every step of the publishing process and are looking forward to creating a program with a fresh, start-up mentality, but with the rich legacy of Tor Books and Tor.com behind us. For more information on the imprint and its mission, please read the full description here.

We are currently seeking to fill the following three positions:

We are looking for candidates with an extensive knowledge of science fiction and fantasy, familiarity with authors and agents, and a desire to create a line with a strong editorial voice.
