Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Gollancz

Well, that’s pretty much it for Team Gollancz – the last few mince pies are being eaten, the robot has passed out in the corner after one too many glasses of prosecco, and the elves are shooting arrows at anyone who thinks they’re helping Father Christmas. Many thanks to all of you who’ve supported us over the year, be you author, agent, publisher or (our favourite) reader. We’ve published some pretty great books, although we say so ourselves, and next year is shaping up to be another good one. As we’ll be telling you repeatedly.

So go, enjoy the last few days before Christmas, and the break, and New Year and so on. We’ll be here waiting for you in January. And never forget, there’s no better Christmas present than a book, be it Gollancz, genre or something else entirely. It’s pretty much too late to get anything delivered, so go down to your local independent or Waterstones and spend!


Marcus joined Gollancz as an Editor at the beginning of 2011, and is greatly enjoying the chance to work on the kind of books he’s always read. His shelves at home are groaning. Previously, he spent ten years as a bookseller for Blackwell’s, ending up as Sales Manager for their flagship London shop on Charing Cross Road. He lives with his partner, a historian and novelist, and their very small child, who is going to know more about SFF then anyone else at nursery. This may not be a good thing.
  • Merry Christmas to all of you at Gollancz from one of your Gollancz Geeks! I was lucky enough to be able to review The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch for the Geeks a couple of months ago and I enjoyed the process so much that this month I started up my very first book review blog! It’s still new and I’m learning as I go but it’s fun and I’ve been enoying working on it so far, I’m sure there will be some Gollancz titles being added to it soon, so thanks to you Gollancz and a Merry Christmas to you all!

    Well, Not sure where to post this so I’m doing it here: by way of error correction — you might want to look at this version of Greg Bear’s “Queen of Angels” and do something about the synopsis on the back, which is incorrect as follows:
    1. The book takes place in 2047, not 2048 (this is crucial to the story arc);
    2. There’s no such character as “May Chow” – the character’s name is “Mary Choy”.
