Tor.com: The Imprint is pleased to announce today the hire of a Senior Editor. Lee Harris, of Angry Robot, will join the team late summer.
Lee Harris started working for Angry Robot in January 2009, six months before they launched their list, as an Assistant Editor to publisher Marc Gascoigne. As an early member of Angry Robot, he took on a number of non-editorial jobs as well, doing a great deal of marketing. He was promoted to Editor a year later and to Senior Editor in 2013. He is a former Chair of the British Fantasy Society and a finalist for the 2014 Hugo Award for Best Editor, Long-Form. He published the debut novels of two of this year’s five John Campbell Nominees, Ramez Naam and Wesley Chu.
“As soon as I heard that Tor.com were setting up a new novella imprint, I contacted Irene within minutes,” says Harris. “I adore the novella format, and that, combined with the might and obvious passion exhibited by Tor.com, convinced me that this was a project I had to be part of from the start! Imagine my delight when Tor agreed. I’m already itching to get started.”
“We are thrilled to have Lee at the core of our team. He has such a great eye for talent, a tremendous amount of marketing savvy, and is an active and engaged member of the community…This is going to be fun,” said Associate Publisher Irene Gallo.
They are still looking to hire a Publicity Manager, Marketing Manager, and Designer.
Alongside the new imprint, Tor.com will also continue its existing program of acquiring award-winning original short fiction for publication on the site itself.
Tor.com announced news of the new imprint and the expansion of their fiction program via novellas, shorter novels, and serializations at the IDPF Digital Blogger Conference last month.
