George Sandison, of Unsung Stories, is joining Titan Books as managing editor for fiction next month.
Sandison is the founder and publisher of Unsung Stories, a speculative fiction press, and will join fellow indie Titan on February 18th. As managing editor of the fiction editorial team, he will focus on Titan Books’ extensive genre and speculative literary lists as well as the licensed tie-ins, replacing Miranda Jewess who is joining Serpents Tail next month to head up the crime list.
Sandison will remain owner of Unsung Stories but will be stepping back and acting as more of a silent partner, handing over much of the responsibility to Unsung editor Dan Coxon.
Titan's editorial director Laura Price said: "We are delighted that George is coming to Titan. His passion for genre fiction is palpable and his knowledge is extensive. We're looking forward to George joining the brilliant team here at Titan and to his helping us to shape and grow our lists in 2019 and beyond.”
Sandison said: "This is something like a dream job for me. I've long been a fan of Titan - their list, their staff and their authors. Teenage me fell in love with The Sandman thanks to Titan all those years ago, and now adult me can't wait to work with such talented nibs as Helen Marshall, Matt Hill, Tim Major and more. It's as much starting an exciting new job for me as it is coming home.”
