UK Publisher Pan Macmillan is partnering with literary agency Curtis Brown UK to release hundreds of out-of-print titles as digital editions under the imprint Macmillan Bello. Available in both digital and print-on-demand formats, 120 titles will be released in November, with an additional 400 scheduled for release in 2012, accoding to paidContent.
All titles are by Curtis Brown authors, from its list of older titles. Most of the titles are adult novels with an ample selection of crime and thriller writing, and many of the authors are deceased.
Macmillan and Curtis Brown join other publishers and agencies, such as Ed Victor Ltd. and Bloomsbury Publishing, PLC, who have recently begun reissuing out-of-print and backlist titles in digital editions.
