HarperCollins will rebrand its Eos imprint in the US as Voyager–a name the company already uses for similar sci-fi, fantasy and horror publishing in the UK and Australia/New Zealand. The change will take place with their January 2011 releases. CEo Brian Murray says in the announcement, “uniting our sister companies in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia/New Zealand allows readers globally unparalleled access to books and authors. This move enables us to offer authors a strong global publishing platform when signing with HarperCollins — whether the acquiring editor is in New York, Sydney, or London.”
Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone Fireside division will drop the Fireside name, starting with their fall releases.
