F+W Crime is committed to publishing original crime novels from debut and established authors alike under our Tyrus Books imprint. We are also documenting the history of crime fiction with our Prologue Books initiative.
Tyrus Books, founded in 2009, has published veteran authors like Loren D. Estleman, Reed Farrel Coleman, and Victoria Houston and was the launching pad for young novelists Scott O’Connor (Untouchable) and Angela S. Choi (Hello Kitty Must Die). The goal of Tyrus Books has always been to explore the human condition–especially the survival of regular folks–when faced with tragedy.
Prologue Books aims to trace the genealogical roots of crime fiction by bringing attention to the authors and books who have influenced some of today’s biggest names.
In the spring of 2011 Tyrus Books was purchased by F+W Media, one of the largest special interest publishers in the world.
