Solaris, an imprint of BL Publishing, was founded in 2007 to publish original science fiction and fantasy, and has published books by Jeffrey Thomas, Gail Z. Martin, Brian Lumley, Eric Brown, James Maxey, Chris Roberson, Adam Roberts, Mark Chadbourn, and others. Their titles are distributed in both the US and the UK. The other imprints of BL Publishing produce gaming-related books and media tie-ins.
According to reports from various authors, Solaris Books is for sale. While some authors have been notified, an official statement has yet to be released from the company. Even though Solaris itself is said to be profitable, parent company Games Workshop apparently wants to focus on their core gaming business. Early reports indicate that Solaris will publish all scheduled books through Spring 2010.
