Authors on the Air host Pam Stack is delighted to welcome the new authors from the new Polis Book impraint, Agora, including Tori Eldridge, Patricia Smith, John Vercher and editor Chantelle Aimee Osman, and publisher Jason Pinter.
Polis Books is proud to announce the launch of Agora, a new imprint devoted to crime fiction from unique and diverse voices from across all cultural spectrums. Chantelle Aimée Osman joins Polis as Editor for Agora, which will launch in the Fall of 2019 with three exciting debut novels:
THREE-FIFTHS by John Vercher
REMEMBER by Patricia Smith
THE NINJA DAUGHTER by Tori Eldridge
The first three titles to be released from Agora in 2019 will be Three-Fifths by John Vercher, the story of a biracial man who discovers a childhood friend has become a neo-nazi; Remember by Patricia Smith, a novel about woman forced to reconcile with a painful past; and The Ninja Daughter by Tori Eldridge, the tale of a woman who dedicates herself to becoming a modern day ninja after the murder of her sister.
Pinter said the launch of Agora Books—agora means open forum—is an effort to “focus on crime novels that delve into the most important issues of our time.” Agora, he said, will offer a diverse roster of authors, whose books will explore “culture, gender, sexuality, society, economy, and politics.”
