Marc Gascoigne has been named publisher of Aconyte, a new fiction imprint from game company Asmodee (which publishes Arkham Horror, Legend of the Five Rings, Pandemic, Dead of Winter, and Catan, among other games). The imprint will focus on titles based on their games, but also has plans to publish tie-in works for other parties. They recently made a deal with Simon & Schuster for US and Canadian distribution, with their first books expected to ship in spring 2020.
Gascoigne was founder, publisher, and managing director of Angry Robot from its beginning in 2008 until he stepped down at the end of 2018. He’s hired former Angry Robot staffers Nick Tyler as publishing coordinator, and Lottie Llewelyn-Wells as assistant editor.
