All of us at Tachyon
wish Michael a very happy birthday.
Tachyon’s Particle Books e-book imprint highlights excellent imaginative fiction. The titles, or Particles, include both young adult and adult fiction; subgenres will include science fiction, fantasy, horror, mysteries, and thrillers.
Lovingly-curated, the Particles are a dynamic mix of original, newly-collected, hard to find, and out-of-print material.
Particle Books was named as an homage to the faster-than-light (and as of now hypothetical) tachyon particle, perhaps best known from Star Trek.
Over the next couple of months, the first wave of extraordinary titles from Mary Shelley, Joe R. Lansdale, James Morrow, Jane Yolen, and James Patrick Kelly will hit the virtual shelves.
