  •  All of our books currently in print can be found on our website; you can search by author, book or ISBN.
    If you can’t find a title that you think we publish it is probably for one of these reasons:

    -It is out of print

    -The book’s publication date is more than 5 months away

    -We don’t publish the book. You can quickly find out the publisher of any book by searching for it on Amazon and scrolling down to the product information section. If it does say Macmillan / Pan / Pan Macmillan / Picador / Tor / Macmillan Children’s Books and you can’t find it on our website, it will be either because of one of the two reasons above, or it will be published by our sister company, Macmillan US. You can search their website at
