I’m Gollancz’s Digital Publisher. People ask me what that means and, upon comparing answers, find that I’ve told everyone something different.

This can only be prevented by bringing me drinks.

One of the great joys of publishing is the discovery of a new writer. For the editor reading the submission, the growing feeling of excitement is like a happy virus that first infects the commissioning editor and then – in true evolutionary fashion – demands to be spread to others. Editorial colleagues, senior management, Sales, Marketing and Publicity all need to be won over, so that the entire company shares the excitement of the commissioning editor.

Only after all of those … More

The King is dead. Long live the King.

Twenty years ago today, the man who was arguably the single greatest creative influence on modern comics (with apologies and a nod to Stan the Man), passed away in Thousand Oaks, California, at the age of 76.

Jacob Kurtzberg – known to the comics world as Jack Kirby – was responsible for the creation of most of the bedrock characters of the More

Gollancz Team: - January 21st, 2014
Cover Reveal, Linda Carey, Louise Carey, Mike Carey

Last year we published The City of Silk and Steel: a wonderful debut novel by an author with almost a dozen books to their name.

Wait. What?

OK, so there was a modicum of publishing legerdemain involved there. Or – as people without an over-active pretentious gland call it – a bit of cheating. The City of Silk and … More

So here we are again.  The new calendar is on the wall, clock has been re-set and a brand new year stretches before us like . . . a great big, stretchy yearie thing, as a certain former-Alaskan governor might well say.
