Want to be my editor?
Penguin Canada is looking for a full-time editor specializing in science fiction, fantasy, mystery, and other commercial fiction to work out of its Toronto office. The new editor will work on the Canadian editions of Robert J. Sawyer's upcoming WWW trilogy, on future books by Guy Gavriel Kay, and on other projects.
The job posting is here.
I had a conversation with Penguin Canada publisher David Davidar about this. This is a real job posting, not a pro forma listing; there is no hidden front-runner, and Penguin Canada is willing to hire from outside of Canada (although you'd have to relocate to Toronto to take the job). The new editor is expected to start work next month (February 2008).
Penguin Canada is a highly successful company, with one hundred million dollars in revenues last year.
(Barbara Berson, who was to have been my editor and had been editing Guy Gavriel Kay, has moved on; hence this vacancy. I wish Barbara all the best!)
