So it was with some measure of relief that I read the following e-mail note this morning from DeJean:
Please be advised that St. Martin’s Minotaur has a new name starting in 2009; henceforth, the imprint will be known as: Minotaur Books.To read the Minotaur mystery authors’ blog, Moments in Crime, click here. Norman Green, author of the new private-eye novel The Last Gig, is this week’s guest contributor.
St. Martin’s Minotaur started in 1999 as the dedicated crime fiction imprint of St. Martin’s Press, and over the last ten years has produced a number of award-winning and bestselling titles often appearing on many ‘critic’s choice’ lists. As you may know, the imprint has traditionally labeled the spines of its book jackets as either: St. Martin’s Minotaur, or, Thomas Dunne Books/Minotaur, depending on internal editorial origins.
“Minotaur Books” is a slight change in our name, but the quality of our crime fiction remains intact.
As always, please be in touch if you have any questions regarding this change or other Minotaur matters. And keep an eye out for exciting novels from Minotaur Books coming out this year and beyond!
