In the UK

Mark Booth's new imprint at Hodder & Stoughton launching this autumn will be called Coronet--reviving a name that was closed in 2004 and previously published authors ranging from PG Wodehouse and Ian Fleming to Fay Weldon.

Booth, who left Century last year to set up the imprint, said he was "glad to revive the old imprint name."The launch list will kick off in September. Booth has been acquiring titles since he arrived last September, along with Charlotte Haycock, who joined him from Century shortly afterwards.

He said, "Charlotte and I want the books we publish to contain new ideas and quickening use of language you can’t find anywhere else. As other media compete more and more for the time we used to give to reading, this becomes more important."
