Our Imprints

Alongside Pan Fiction and Non-Fiction, our team encompasses our hardback imprint Macmillan, specialist SFF imprint Tor and reading group imprint Mantle

Macmillan is our commercial hardback imprint, and home of blockbusters from household names in both fiction and non-fiction.

Pan Fiction is the UK’s third largest fiction imprint, the leading imprint in Romance & Sagas and home to giants of crime and thriller publishing.

Our Non-Fiction publishing is going from strength to strength, sharing stories that make a powerful, human connection with their readers.

Furnishing lists of choice, from the Women’s Prize to Waterstones Thriller of the Month, Mantle publishes high quality writing and brilliant storytelling with a broad appeal that often features stories of ‘the outsider’ — those unsung heroes and heroines who change things for the better.

Tor is a flagship publisher of science fiction, fantasy and horror. Its stellar line-up of authors includes award-winners, bestsellers and talented debut writers.

Our Team

We are a small team, with a strength belied by our size. Tightly focused, we work closely and have powerfully personal relationships with our authors, their agents and everyone who sells their books.
