Our new fiction imprint, CORSAIR, sets sailTuesday 20th Oct 2009
Constable & Robinson have announced the name of the new fiction list, Corsair, headed by James Gurbutt who said ‘it’s more the spirit of independence we wish to convey than piracy in the literal sense.’ They plan to start publishing in April 2010, and to date have acquired the following:
Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter by Seth Graham-Smith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, sold by Cathryn Summerhayes on behalf of Claudia Ballard at WME
Pictures of Lily by Matthew Yorke, who won the John Llewellyn Rhys prize for his first novel The March Fence, from Andrew Kidd at Aitken Alexander
The Seas by Orange Prize shortlisted author Samantha Hunt sold by Caspian Dennis on behalf of PJ Mark at McCormick and Williams
The Privileges by Jonathan Dee sold by Melissa Pimentel at Curtis Brown on behalf of Amanda Urban at ICM which has already received advance praise from Jay McInerney: ‘The tour de force first chapter alone is worth the price of admission’, and Richard Ford: ‘verbally brilliant’.
