Hachette Livre Australia and Orbit have just released the following announcement. This is great news for both writers and readers of science fiction, fantasy and horror in Australia.

13th June 2007


Hachette Livre Australia is delighted to announce the appointment of Bernadette Foley as Publisher of Orbit, in Australia.

Bernadette’s role, in conjunction with Tim Holman, Publishing Director of Orbit in the USA and UK, is to develop an Australian and New Zealand Science Fiction and Fantasy list, which will be a key part of Orbit’s global publishing strategy. Orbit is already the leading SF and Fantasy imprint in the UK, and launches in the US later this year.

This new position is in addition to Bernadette’s current role, and she will continue to publish her current authors, as well as acquiring new authors in other areas.

Fiona Hazard, Publishing Director of HLA said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Hachette Livre Australia, and for Bernadette, to be part of a global group initiative to expand its publishing in the areas of Science Fiction and Fantasy. We are very excited about this new challenge, and look forward to immersing ourselves in this new world.â€

If there's going to be an Australian office for Orbit, hopefully this will also mean we might be able to see more of their authors coming out here for tours and such as well.
