Who We Are
Voyager is the home of fantasy and science fiction at HarperCollins and is one of the world’s greatest genre lists. We publish giants of fantasy like George R.R. Martin (creator of GAME OF THRONES), Raymond E. Feist, David Eddings and Robin Hobb, newer bestsellers like Joe Abercrombie, Guy Gavriel Kay and Peter V Brett and classic science fiction by such all-time greats as Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K Dick and Ray Bradbury; and we are also incredibly proud of our commitment to developing the brightest new talents such as Mark Lawrence (PRINCE OF THORNS), Emmi Itäranta (MEMORY OF WATER) and Josh Malerman (BIRDBOX).
If you’d like to get in touch with the Voyager team, you can reach us on Facebook or Twitter, or you can contact that HarperCollins customer service team, who should be able to redirect your enquiry to the right part of the team.
Jane Johnson has been reading fantasy since the Dark Ages, when she took a Masters degree in Old Icelandic. She launched the Voyager list in 1995 and remains its Publishing Director from whichever dimension of the space-time continuum she happens to be in. She spent some years as the Tolkien Publisher, and still writes companions to the Peter Jackson films as Jude Fisher. She is the editor for George R.R. Martin, Raymond E. Feist, Robin Hobb, Mark Lawrence and Joe Abercrombie, and while operating in a quantum universe also writes novels. You can find her at @janejohnsonbakr
Emma Coode is the Deputy Publishing Director at Voyager. She can make a fleet of Lego star ships in under ten minutes and makes a mean cake using her Millennium Falcon cake mould. She has an extensive knowledge of Kung Fu movies and will beat you at Scrabble. Never approach her before her morning coffee and always ask her for a book recommendation. She sometimes tweets @harpervoyageruk, but prefers to stay mysterious and aloof.
Natasha Bardon got lost in Ankh-Morpork at the age of ten and after a brief detour via Middle Earth, the Six Duchies and the Seven Kingdoms, she found her way to Voyager two years ago where she is now an Editor at Voyager and sometimes tweets as @harpervoyagerUK, but can be found more frequently @natashabardon. She’s always on the lookout for a good story and loves to talk about books. If you fancy a chat or have a question get in touch!
Eleanor Ashfield is Project Editor, Voyager, and she takes her tea as mild and murky as the bitter waters of The Shattered Sea. Often mistaken for the wildling Ygritte due to her incredible wit, and outstanding archery skills, she wields a pencil with the power and dexterity of a broadsword, which often makes it quite difficult to write. She tweets schizophrenically often as @harpervoyageruk, or carefully disguised under her alias @elashfieldraws.
Rachel Winterbottom is Assistant Editor at Voyager, and started consuming fantasy at an escalating rate from an early age. If reading books lets us live many lives, then she’s very much enjoyed the ones where she ran wild through the woods with a talking wolf, trod the beat with Vimes’ Night Watch and tried to secure the Iron Throne for her family. In her day-to-day life, she enjoys reading, watching terrible horror films and drinking copious amounts of Diet Coke. You can find her tweeting @frostycheeks (@winterbottom was, unfortunately, taken).
Katie Sadler is the Digital Marketing Manager for HarperFiction. She loves sci fi and fantasy, particularly A Song of Ice and Fire, Robin Hobb’s Rainwild Chronicles, and Battlestar Galactica, which she’s planning to rewatch from end to end for the third time soon. She can usually be found at the end of @HarperVoyagerUK, so tweet her and say hello!
