History

Avalon Books was an imprint of Thomas Bouregy & Co., Inc. Established in 1950 by Thomas Bouregy that ran from 1995 to 2012 when it was sold to Amazon.

Avalon was an important science fiction imprint in the 1950s and 60 when it specialized in science fiction. Avalon issued new titles, reissued out of print titles originally from other publishers, and first editions of material that had previously only seen magazine publication. Its books featured cover art by famed artist Ed Emshwiller and others. Later, competition with mainstream publishers, starting their own science fiction lines and the marginal nature of genre publishing in general, led to the line being discontinued.
