Ebury Publishing is pleased to announce the launch of Del Rey - its new SF and Fantasy imprint which will begin publishing in early 2013.
The imprint will enjoy a close day-to-day relationship with the prestigious Random House US imprint of the same name, acquiring authors jointly, where possible, and working together on coordinated and integrated marketing and publicity campaigns. In addition, Ebury's Del Rey will acquire authors expressly for the UK market.
Del Rey Editorial Director, Michael Rowley commented ‘I am delighted that Ebury's SF and Fantasy list will be working closely with our US sister imprint Del Ray. The Del Rey imprint has a history and reputation that is second to none and it's a wonderful opportunity for our two houses to work closer together in publishing the very best SF and Fantasy.’
Jake Lingwood, Publisher and Deputy Managing Director of Ebury Publishing said ‘Our long-standing presence in the bestseller lists with our Doctor Who fiction publishing combined with our strategic desire to expand our successful niche fiction publishing, made launching a science fiction and fantasy imprint a logical step. It plays to all of Ebury's strengths. And with the Del Rey imprint, with all that entails in terms of legacy and also in terms of our US partnership, we are offering authors an enormously attractive proposition.’
Ebury Publishing's new Del Rey colophon was designed by Toby Clarke at Clarkevanmeurs design.
