Look Who’s Talking up Pyr

My publisher, Pyr, has been getting some accolades lately, and I’ve tagged along for the ride. Wow, a Pulitzer Prize winner has read Bright of the Sky?

(The following excerpts from a Prometheus press release:)

Junot Díaz, winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, says “Pyr books has in a few short years become the imprint to beat in the science fiction and fantasy fields.”

“[With The First Law series, Joe] Abercrombie has written the finest epic fantasy trilogy in recent memory. He’s one writer that no one should miss. Ian McDonald’s Brasyl is beyond superb. This novel should have beaten all comers for all the main awards. And who is writing space opera as sharp as Kay Kenyon in her The Entire And The Rose series?”

The release goes on:

Joseph Mallozzi writes and produces one of television’s hottest science fiction shows, Stargate: Atlantis. During production in Vancouver, Canada, he regularly communicates with the show’s fans through online forums and blogs. Somehow, he also finds time to read for pleasure—and some of his recent favorites come from Pyr.

Mallozzi says, “Pyr continues to impress with its growing line-up of premiere genre fiction. From Justina Robson’s mind-bending Quantum Gravity series to Kay Kenyon’s thoughtful and provocative Entire and the Rose saga, it’s an imprint marked for offering up some of the best Fantasy and SF being written today.”
