"Amazon Publishing has acquired about 1,000 romance, Western and horror titles from defunct publisher Dorchester’s backlist. Amazon will pay Dorchester authors any outstanding royalties and divide the books among its various West Coast imprints."
"Going forward, the acquired Dorchester titles will be published under the appropriate Amazon Publishing imprints: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror titles to 47North; Romance titles to Montlake Romance; Mystery and Thriller titles to Thomas & Mercer; Westerns and other titles to AmazonEncore. Titles will be available both in print and as Kindle books. Under the terms of Amazon’s bid, any former Dorchester Publishing authors that chose not to work with Amazon Publishing will have their rights revert back to them to pursue other publishing opportunities including self-publishing via the Kindle Direct Publishing platform."
Dorchester was pretty much THE place for horror for the past decade so it'll be nice to (hopefully) see many of those titles back in print.
