HMH unveils line dedicated to science-fiction and fantasy publishing

In the US, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) will introduce a dedicated science-fiction and fantasy line from February 2016, reports Publishers Weekly. John Joseph Adams, who edited HMH’s first Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy, published in February of this year, is editor-at-large overseeing the line. It will debut with backlist print editions of Hugh Howey’s novels Shift, Dust and Beacon 23. Adams said he believes ‘we are in the midst of a golden age in science fiction and fantasy literature’.  ‘Thus far I’ve devoted my entire career to publishing genre short fiction, but I now look forward to applying that same level of curation to finding the best new novels and new authors,’ said Adams. Adams has overseen numerous other science-fiction and fantasy anthologies and is the editor of Nightmare and Lightspeed magazines.
