47North joins a handful of Amazon imprints including: AmazonEncore, AmazonCrossing, Powered by Amazon, Montlake Romance, Thomas & Mercer and the Amazon Publishing family.

It launches with 15 books, including The Mongoliad: Book One, the first in the five-book collection of stories from various authors including Neal Stephenson and Greg Bear. Other titles include Lee Goldberg and William Rabkin‘s new digital novel Face of Evil, the first novel in The Dead Man series, which comes out this month. A handful of titles are slated for publication next year including Dave Duncan‘s Against the Light, which comes out in January.

47North titles will be available in Kindle, print and audio formats through Amazon, as well as in stores through competing booksellers.
