Speculative Fiction Imprint
Founded in 1991 by John Douglas, AvoNova was a science fiction paperback imprint of Avon Books and a sub-imprint of William Morrow, also co-owned at the time by the Hearst Corporation. AvoNova bought paperback rights and an agreed number of copies to some Morrow science fiction titles. Titles in both formats carried the name of both publishing houses either together on the title page or on the title page verso. George Turner
and Jane Routley
were published under the AvoNova imprint.
AvoNova was discontinued in September 1998. Avon Books launched science fiction and fantasy
imprint Eos in February 1999. All reside under the HarperCollins umbrella (2012).
