New Orbiteer

We’re delighted to announce a new addition to the Orbit team in the UK. Darren Turpin joins us on 7 April, in the role of Marketing Executive. Also known to some in genre circles as Ariel, Darren has been involved with science fiction and fantasy for many years. During his time as a bookseller, he was co-editor of The Waterstone’s Guide to Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, and he created the very-near-legendary genre website The Alien Online. Most recently, he has worked as a freelance web developer, and built websites for many of our authors, including Philip Palmer and Brian Ruckley. We’re enormously excited that he’ll be working on websites and online campaigns for our authors.

Darren, welcome!

    You will, of course, have to change your name, too. I’m sure you understand.

    Welcome aboard!
