More Changes at Tor

Tor/Forge Books followed Tuesday’s promotions with another round of staff announcements today.

Diana Gill has been named Executive Editor at Tor/Forge.

Tom Doherty, President and Publisher of Tor/Forge Books, said:

I am delighted to announce that Diana Gill will be joining us at Tor/Forge. She managed the US division of Harper Voyager, the global science fiction and fantasy imprint of HarperCollins, for twelve years. At Voyager, she discovered such NY Times bestselling authors as Kim Harrison and Ian Douglas. In 2014 she moved to the Berkley Publishing Group. At Berkley’s Ace/Roc she acquired and edited such notable and bestselling authors as Charlaine Harris, Mark Lawrence, Steven Donaldson, and Zen Cho. She developed both established and emerging authors across platforms and formats, both digital and traditional. Diana has done some very fine work in our field. She’ll be a great addition to the Tor/Forge team.

And Publishers Lunch broke the news of 11 other changes:

Amy Sefton has also been named designer in the ad/promo department. Previously she was an in-house graphic designer and illustrator for BuzzFeed. In addition, the division announced a number of recent editorial promotions.

  1. Shifting deckchairs on the Titanic! They’ll never recover from the multi-million dollar Scalzi boondoggle! Five years from now, there will be no Tor books and the genre will be dominated by Castallia House! We have always been at war with Eastasia!

  2. Congrats to everyone. Looks to me like Tor is making some smart moves. It would be nice to see some people of color in higher level positions. Maybe they could work on that next?

    @Sean O’Hara
    LOL yep so far it appears the big deal with Scalzi is destroying Tor…

  3. REM: You did see that Devi Pillai was hired as Associate Publisher, right?

    Right. I reported on her and PNH in the Tuesday post.
