Little, Brown UK has purchased Constable & Robinson, effective immediately.
Constable & Robinson, with its eight trade imprints, will retain its name and will become its own division of Little, Brown Book Group. All contracts will be honored, and existing arrangements with authors, freelancers, distributors, and retailers will remain unchanged for now.
Constable & Robinson CEO Nova Jayne Robinson will be “leaving the business to focus on the online businesses that I have developed in recent years” and to work on the Robinson Psychology Trust charity. Managing director Pete Duncan will run the division, reporting to publisher David Shelley. Constable & Robinson publishes fiction and non-fiction in various genres, including a great deal of SF/F via their “Mammoth Book” reprint anthologies.
