Amazon.com is launching it's own Science Fiction and Fantasy Imprint: 47North
Amazon.com is expanding their publishing house, launching the 47North imprint to publish Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror under. They will publish original and previously published works from authors old and new and also some out of print books.
47North have lined up 15 titles for launch with its first title coming from Lee Goldberg and William Rabkin, the authors of Successful Television Writing and who have written and/or produced scores of highly successful network television series, including Diagnosis Murder, Spenser: For Hire, and Baywatch.
The majority of books will start being released in the first quarter of 2012 and will be a mix of stand alone books and the first of series' novels. Neal Stephenson's Foreworld series will be one and a number of other authors have signed on so far, including: Greg Bear, Daven Duncan, Arwen Elys Dayton, Aric Davis, Evan Curries, Stephen Leather, Chris Roberson, B.V. Larson and more.
All titles will be available to English readers in Kindle, print and audio formats at www.amazon.com, and the company plans to distribute to bookstores (though some wonder how they will get their books into chain bookstores).
