Skyhorse Publishing was launched in September 2006 by Tony Lyons, former president and publisher of the Lyons Press, and its first titles were published in March 2007. Lyons talked to dozens of potential investors, all of whom asked the same question: "Can a new book publishing company make it in the current environment?" His response remains: "Succeeding as an independent publisher is not going to be easy, but by scouring the country for genre books that large publishers ignore, resurrecting forgotten classics, and by moving both more quickly and with greater attention to detail than other publishers, I believe we can flourish."
Skyhorse—with its nine imprints (Allworth Press, Arcade Publishing, Gary Null Publishing, Helios Press, Night Shade Books, Not For Tourists, Sky Pony Press, Sports Publishing, and Talos Press) now boasts a backlist of more than 3,000 titles. Since its founding, Skyhorse has published an eclectic and maverick list that includes books on history, politics, rural living, humor, and more. With its imprints, the Skyhorse program now includes business, art, fiction, regional books, and children's books. Skyhorse has had eight New York Times bestsellers.
Skyhorse is distributed by W. W. Norton in the United States, Thomas Allen & Son in Canada, and Constable & Robinson, one of England's oldest and most respected independent publishers, in the United Kingdom and the European Union. Starting in 2014, Skyhorse and its imprints will be distributed by Perseus Books Group in the United States.
