Amazon Among Rumored Quercus Suitors

Posted at 3:11PM Tuesday 11 Mar 2014

Though the smart money is probably on Orion - co-founders Mark Smith and Wayne Davies are both Orion alumnae - two other rumors are circulating. The first, that Quercus would find a home with Head of Zeus. That would surely be difficult, for Smith and Anthony Cheetham parted company acrimoniously.

The second rumor was a good deal more intriguing: in this scenario the buyer is Amazon Publishing. Not so unlikely when you think about it, for Quercus' genre fiction would fit well with Amazon, and booksellers would find it all but impossible not to stock all those well-established authors.
