Hodder and Stoughton has promoted editor Anne Perry to the role of commissioning editor, as of 1st August.
Associate publisher Oliver Johnson said: “Since joining Hodder a little over three years ago, Anne has been an enthusiastic and inspirational colleague. Her first purchase, Sarah Lotz’s The Three, became the book of the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair and sold in 23 territories. Since then she has acquired some of the most prestigious writers in the SFF area: James Smythe, Nnedi Okorafor and Lavie Tidhar.
"She has consistently demonstrated both editorial and marketing acumen. Her work on Hodder’s SFF hub, Hodderscape, has been instrumental in making it one of the most successful online communities in the UK. Anne’s work has been widely recognised.
"She has been nominated for a Hugo Award, has won the British Fantasy Award, named by the Hospital 100 Club as one of the most influential and innovative people working across arts, culture and the creative industries in the UK and was the recipient of the 2014 Kim Scott Walwyn Prize. “
