Night Shade Books was founded in 1997, and has been publishing science fiction, fantasy and horror for nearly two decades. After fifteen years, and more than two hundred and fifty books later, and Night Shade Books has become a significant publisher of genre fiction. With the help of an essential and dedicated group of editors, artists, and designers, we publish between three and five books a month. The books published by Night Shade are routinely well-reviewed by trade and online venues and are frequently nominated for — and occasionally win — major industry awards, including the Shirley Jackson, Stoker, World Fantasy, Nebula, and Hugo awards. They are proud to have published some of the most renowned and critically acclaimed names in genre fiction and just as proud to be the place where many new authors have found their start. In 2010 Night Shade Books began a concentrated effort to build on a fundamental principal that they have always believed in; Night Shade should provide a space for new voices and authors in genre fiction. Their aggressive schedule of debut novels, along with their Eclipse series of original short fiction has resulted in great success that they believe reflects readers’ thirst for new voices in genre fiction. They will continue to keep their finger on the pulse of the genre community, and they strongly believe that many of today’s new authors will be the important authors of the genre’s future. Starting in 2013, Night Shade Books has been co-owned and operated by Skyhorse Publishing and Start Publishing.
