This year Myriad celebrates ten years of publishing original fiction and graphic novels. We have uncovered exciting new voices and launched some of the most outstanding debuts of recent years, from crime and psychological thrillers to literary fiction. Our bestselling authors include Elizabeth Haynes, Lesley Thomson, Darryl Cunningham and Kate Evans. We publish books that are bold, eclectic and full of character, and proudly build on Myriad’s early days as creator of the ground-breaking State of the World atlas series. In 2012 we founded the First Fictions festival to celebrate and champion new writing, in collaboration with the University of Sussex. Together we also launched the Quick Fictions app to showcase flash fictions of under three hundred words. Read more about Myriad here.
