Since its founding in 1980, Tor Books has published science fiction and fantasy novels that have won every major award in the genre. Under the Tom Doherty Associates name, Tor was joined by more imprints, from Forge Books to the new Nightfire horror imprint.
Today, Tom Doherty Associates becomes the Tor Publishing Group.
The Tor Publishing Group includes the eponymous SFF imprint; Forge, which specializes in thrillers and mysteries as well as speculative fiction, contemporary fiction, and media-related nonfiction; Nightfire, which publishes horror; Tor Teen and Starscape, which focus on books for teens and young readers; and, of course, Tordotcom Publishing, home to novella and novel-length works of original SFF. Together, these imprints publish authors including Charlie Jane Anders, Holly Black, Olivie Blake, W. Bruce Cameron, Jacqueline Carey, P. Djèlí Clark, Cory Doctorow, Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman, Alix E. Harrow, Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, TJ Klune, Victor LaValle, Cixin Liu, Seanan McGuire, L.E.

In a statement, Tor president and publisher Devi Pillai said, “Although the Tor name has always been associated with science fiction and fantasy, our list has included titles beyond that genre since our inception. With this name change and continued growth, the Tor name will now stand for quality in various types of genre publishing, with each imprint representing a distinct voice.”
