Happy birthday to our favorite curmudgeon, Tachyon marketing director James DeMaiolo

With forty years of experience in the book business as retail bookseller, book buyer, and an associate editor, James DeMaiolo brings his extensive experience in sales, marketing, and publicity to Tachyon. Along the way, he honed his expertise with stints at Simon & Schuster, Henry Holt, Berkeley, Tor, and Applause Books.

Since joining Tachyon in 2010, he’s been instrumental in the development and production of many projects, most notably the World Fantasy Award winner THE NEW VOICES OF FANTASY, INVADERS: 22 TALES FROM THE OUTER LIMITS OF LITERATURE, and Thomas M Disch’s final novel THE WORD OF GOD: OR, HOLY WRITE REWRITTEN. Among his numerous duties, DeMaiolo produces most of Tachyon’s ebooks.

He is, also, a published playwright (The Scarlet Letter: the play [1997]) and edited a collection of essays on the Federal Theatre Project and a Living Newspaper scenario, The Thrill of Finding Money (2010).

All of us at Tachyon wish Jim a happy birthday. May it bring you
joy by being full of things that you don’t hate too much.
