Games developer Rebellion, also owner of science fiction and fantasy imprint Abaddon Books, has completed the acquisition of the Solaris book publishing imprint from Games Workshop, for an undisclosed sum.
George Mann, Games Workshop’s head of publishing, said, “We’re delighted that Solaris has found a new home with Rebellion. After a period of fantastic growth with our Games Workshop related titles, we decided the time was right for us to focus all of our attention on our Black Library imprint. We’re sure Rebellion will now take Solaris forward to even greater heights.”
Rebellion has also entered into a sales and distribution agreement with Simon & Schuster. Under the agreement, Simon & Schuster will continue to handle sales, distribution, and fulfillment of all Solaris titles for all new and backlist titles to trade and specialty accounts.
