ORBIT publishes across the spectrum of Science Fiction and Fantasy — from action-packed urban fantasy to widescreen space opera; from sweeping epic adventures to near-future thrillers. Launched in the US in 2007, Orbit has quickly become one of the market leaders in the genre, publishing New York Times bestselling authors such as Iain M. Banks, Greg Bear, Gail Carriger, and Brent Weeks. In fact, following his launch in 2008, Brent Weeks has become one of the fastest selling new authors ever launched by an SF imprint. Orbit’s title have been recognized with numerous awards: for the last two years, two of the five novels nominated for the prestigious Hugo Awards were published by Orbit (FEED by Mira Grant and THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS by N.K. Jemisin in 2001; LEVIATHAN WAKES by James S.A. Corey and DEADLINE by Mira Grant in 2012). In 2010 three of the five best science fiction and fantasy books on Publisher’s Weekly best of the year were from Orbit.
