Tor.com Publishes Its First Book

ybf923.jpgThe website Tor.com has jumped into the publishing business, releasing a print-on-demand edition of David G. Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer‘s “Year’s Best Fantasy 9.”

The publishing venture will be treated as a Macmillan imprint, separate from Tor Books. The book will be sold at Tor.com, as well as online booksellers like Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble. Among other stories, the anthology contains “Daltharee” by Jeffrey Ford, “The Rabbi’s Hobby” by Peter S. Beagle, and the Best Novelette Hugo-winning story, “Shoggoths in Bloom” by Elizabeth Bear.

Here’s more from the release: “YBF 9 is available only as a print-on-demand book, in keeping with our mission of always exploring alternative forms of publishing. Similar to the launch of the Tor.com Store, this title is one of our various publishing projects that seek to experiment with the available alternatives to publishing’s traditional sales, distribution, and delivery mechanisms.”
