Celebrating 50 Years of Orbit Books

We’re very proud to say that Orbit is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year!

Launched in 1974, for the last fifty years Orbit has been bringing you the most outstanding books in science fiction and fantasy: novels that have swept the board for awards, been global bestsellers, forged new paths and pushed the boundaries of genre fiction.

We’ll be celebrating this landmark year in a range of wonderful ways throughout 2024 – with brilliant events, competitions and giveaways, unmissable promotions, fun features on Orbit’s past, present and future, and much, much more!

Check out the new Orbit 50th Anniversary logo on our social pages, and look out for exciting ways to join in with our celebrations throughout the year, with the hashtag #Orbit50.

Happy birthday to all who Orbit!!
