Lou Anders - Pyr Editorial Director - Wins Hugo Award
Date: 28 August 2011
This was the fifth consecutive nomination and the first win for Anders in the category.
"Words cannot express what an honor this award represents to me,” Anders said. “But what I can express is how privileged I feel to work every day with the host of brilliant authors who have made Pyr what it is.""Lou's taste, vision, and stewardship have been instrumental in shaping the Pyr brand," said Prometheus Books President Jonathan Kurtz. "We're extremely pleased and grateful for the tremendous reception Pyr has received since its inception."
Prometheus Books, an independent publisher of thoughtful nonfiction, launched the Pyr imprint in March 2005. Since then, it has become a brand known for books with quality both inside and out, from rich, engrossing narratives to award-winning cover art and design. Although technically an imprint, Pyr was called “one of a very few publishers I know of who have no bad books to their name” by a BiblioBuffet writer, and “one of the most exciting publishers in the business” by Black Gate magazine.
