LEC Book Reviews Names Pyr Co-Publisher of the Year

The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack (Burton & Swinburne in)LEC Book reviews have posted their "2010 in Review & Anticipation of 2011" list. It's chocked full of Pyr titles. Their top ten features Tome of the Undergates and The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack, as well as the UK versions of books Pyr will be releasing in the States in 2011--Wolfsangel, The Scarab Path, Thirteen Years Later. (Also pleased to see my own co-edited Eos anthology, Swords & Dark Magic.) Meanwhile, the award their "Best SFF Publisher/Imprint" jointly to Pyr and Tor UK/Pan Macmillan. Speaking of Pyr, they say:
"If you haven’t given Pyr releases a look, you really should. Their output, under the editorial hand of Lou Anders, is nothing short of amazing. By this I mean the number of releases of theirs that are consistently good. I had the chance to read a large number of their releases, particularly in the back half of the year (in fact I’m devouring Mike Resnick’s The Buntline Special as we speak), and most were good while some were simply outstanding. For UK readers Pyr publications might be difficult to get you hands on (actually, they are the US outlet for a number of originally British releases such as Syke’s Tome of the Undergates, Tchaikovsky’ Shadows of the Apt and Kent’s Danilov Quintet, which are all mentioned in the lists above) but trust me, importing their books through a service like is well worth it."
