I find myself the Associate Publisher of Gollancz with no clear idea of how I got here but fairly sure I enjoyed the journey. There was some college, a lot of bookselling and a bit of marketing along the way but that was a long time ago. I’ve been editing since 1991. I’ve always read SF, Fantasy and Horror but I’ve always enjoyed reading other stuff as well. I’ve published other stuff too but never had as much fun doing it as I have publishing genre books. I’m very happy doing what I’m doing; to the extent that I’ve been comprehensively ruined for doing anything else. Anything else may have got off lightly. I’m definitely more Arthur Dent than I am Takeshi Kovacs. But then if anyone in publishing tells you they’re like Takeshi Kovacs they are LYING.

Cover Reveal, Fantasy, Scott Lynch

You can imagine how excited we are to be revealing this particular cover. Yes! We’re looking to publish The Thorn of Emberlain before the end of 2015. We have sat on the secret of its dramatic plot turn for some long while and on this stunning image from Alejandro Colucci while Scott took a look at it, but now we just have to let you see it.

As you can tell from the armour, the business like blades and the scarlet … More

Cover Art, Cover Reveal, Science Fiction

We are absolutely thrilled to be able to reveal the cover for Ian McDonald’s new novel, Luna: New Moon. Designed by Black Sheep (who are also responsible for Adam Roberts’ covers) this was one of those happy occasions when the designers not just hit the brief for the cover but make it better than you ever imagined it might be.

Ian has set out to do for the moon what he has previously (with River of Gods, … More

#WeirdLondon- Celebrating Favourite London Based Novels

Gollancz Team: - February 4th, 2015
Ben Aaronovitch, Fantasy, Fiction, Other

London, any city in fact, is a coming together of many, many stories. Writers of the fantastic have long been fascinated by the potential of cities as locales for their stories but London, with its unique combination of great age, many cultures and continuing significance, has been the setting for perhaps more than its fair share of stories of the strange, surreal and fantastic.

From tales of other Londons existing alongside the city we know, to ghost stories, to metaphysical horror, … More

Brandon Sanderson, Fantasy, News

We’re so excited! You wait not very long at all for a new Brandon Sanderson release date and then two turn up at once! We launched Brandon in the UK with the Mistborn trilogy (The Final Empire, The Well of Ascension and Hero of Ages) so it’s always been a series that’s very close to our hearts. Following on from that trilogy, Brandon then did that rare thing and moved … More

Cover Reveal: The Boy Who Wept Blood

Gollancz Team: - December 18th, 2014
Cover Art, Cover Reveal, Den Patrick, Fantasy

The Boy Who Wept Blood is a new standalone adventure from Den Patrick. Set in his marvellously drawn world of Landfall (a world where characters and author alike have secrets) these are tight, fast moving fantasies driven by all-too-flawed and very real characters. There’s much to appeal to fantasy and historical readers alike with intrigue, deceit and a fair bit of swash-buckling to power the plot along.

We wanted to reflect that in the covers. We also wanted to … More
