Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror Ghostwriters Added to Arbor Books' Roster to Meet Growing Demand
The science fiction, horror, and fantasy genres are bigger business than ever, especially in books, comic books, and movies. To meet the demand of story-tellers and others who want to capitalize on this red hot trend, Arbor Books is adding even more science fiction and fantasy ghostwriters to their roster.
Many of Arbor Books' science fiction, horror, and fantasy writers have been published by St Martin's Press, HarperCollins, Warner, Random House, Baen, Del Rey, Simon & Schuster, MIRA Books, Ballentine, Bantam, Warner Books, Doubleday, Dutton, Tor, Pocketbooks, Berkley Books, Pinnacle/Kensington Books, Penguin Putnam, Analog, Amazing Stories, Realms of Fantasy, Paradox, and Interzone.
Some of Arbor Books' science fiction, horror, and fantasy writers are "media tie-in" writers, having written books for some of the most popular series in the world: Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Dr. Who, HALO, WARHAMMER, Jurassic Park, Eureka, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dark Shadows, and more. They are also members of the Horror Writers Association, International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers Guild, and Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.
Some of the new Arbor Books' science fiction, horror, and fantasy writers have also been optioned for the movies and TV by New Line Cinema, Fox Searchlight, and many other production companies. They have worked on film projects with ABC, NBC, Fox Television, Hearst Entertainment, Davis Entertainment Television, Beacon Pictures, TNC Pictures, RKO Pictures, Warner, Disney, Sony, Paramount, Universal, Tribune, Fox, BBC, and more.
"It seems everyone has a science fiction, horror, and/or fantasy story to tell," says Larry Leichman, co-founder of Arbor Books, a top ghostwriting firm (http://www.arborbooks.com). "And with readers and audiences hungrier than ever for these kinds of stories, there's no better time to jump on the bandwagon."
In the movie industry, the number of science fiction films and their overall market share has doubled over the last twenty years, approaching 15% of all movies produced and pulling in over $1 billion, according to online's "The Numbers." And those figures don't even include the fantasy and horror genres.
