Here’s a quick tidbit from Publishers Lunch: the British science fiction imprint Orbit, a division of Little, Brown UK, will be relocating to the Hachette Book Group’s New York office as part of a broader effort to take the line international. “I believe that there is a fantastic opportunity for a dynamic new SF/Fantasy imprint to thrive in the U.S.,” says publishing director Tim Holman, and plans call for the American Orbit to be publishing 40 titles a year by the end of the decade. The question is where they’ll come from: Most of Orbit’s May 2006 releases, for example, have already found U.S. homes at established sci-fi houses like Tor and Del Rey; the one exception, Russell Kirkpatrick’s Across the Face of the World, is a fantasy trilogy published in Australia by HarperCollins.
