Benjamin Leroy and Alison Janssen have announced their departure from crime and literary fiction publisher Bleak House Books in Madison, WI to launch their own venture, Tyrus Books. Leroy founded Bleak House in 2001 and the company was sold to Big Earth Publishing in 2005. Tyrus's inaugural list has three titles - novels by Peter Gadol and Michael Lister and an anthology of crime short stories edited by Ed Gorman & Martin H. Greenberg - that were originally part of Bleak House's fall catalog; Tyrus will publish the titles as scheduled.
Fair winds and following seas, guys. It's a damned gutsy move, especially right now.
