History
Macmillan Publishers of the UK founded St. Martin's in 1952 and named it after St Martin's Lane in London, where Macmillan Publishers was headquartered. St. Martin's acquired Tor-Forge Books (science fiction, fantasy, and thrillers). In 1995, Macmillan was sold to Holtzbrinck Publishers, LLC, a group of publishing companies held by Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck, a family owned publishing concern based in Stuttgart, Germany, which also owns publishing houses including Farrar, Straus and Giroux (of mostly literary fiction), Holt Publishers (literary non-fiction).[5]
Authors published by St. Martin's include Mary Kay Andrews, Jeffrey Archer, Steve Berry, C. J. Box, Linda Castillo, Ann Cleeves, Kristin Hannah, Lynda Lopez, Louise Penny, Nora Roberts, Rainbow Rowell, Ian K. Smith, and Jocko Willink. It also publishes the New York Times crossword puzzle books.
Its textbook division, Bedford-St. Martin's, was founded in 1981. In 1984, St. Martin's became the first major trade-book publisher to release its hardcover books by its in-house mass-market paperback company, St. Martin's Mass Market Paperback Co., Inc.[6][citation needed]
