Orbit Short Fiction expands publishing programme from the USA to the UK

Orbit is launching its digital short fiction publishing programme internationally, expanding from its US base.
Orbit Short Fiction, which launched in the US in April, will release titles simultaneously in the US, UK and all other markets in which its e-books are regularly distributed from the start of 2012.

Editorial director Anne Clarke said: "The digital short fiction market is clearly gaining momentum, and I'm delighted that we'll now be able to make our authors' stories available internationally. The success of the programme in the US has been very encouraging, and we're very much looking forward to working with our authors and colleagues in the US on this next stage in its development."
