Fleuve Editions

Created in 1949, Fleuve Éditions has always had a penchant for popular literature. Through multiple mutations, it has retained a sense of curiosity and a desire to share its discoveries, while remaining attentive to the evolution of society and the public's tastes. It launched the phenomenon of "chick lit" in France with Lauren Weisberger's The Devil Wears Prada. Fleuve Éditions publishes broad-based general literature - novels, detective fiction, thrillers, science fiction and fantasy - as well as documents and illustrated books such as the highly successful Simon's Cat. Lauren Weisberger remains one of the catalogue's big names, but the range of novels has been diversified, with, for example, Jonathan Tropper's bitter-sweet comedies, Robyn Young's historical epics, Jasper Fforde's unclassifiable whimsies and Michael Zadoorian's The Leisure Seeker, along with the Fleuve Docs collection, including first-hand accounts and life experience such as Colin Beavan's No Impact Man, Jaddo's Juste après dresseuse d'ours, or Didier Lestrade and Gilles Pialoux's Sida 2.0. Fleuve Éditions, the publishers of San-Antonio and Léo Malet, maintains the tradition of the thriller and the detective novel with, for example, Franck Thilliez (one of the few French authors to be published in the United States), Giacometti and Ravenne, whose Freemason police chief's adventures have already been followed by more than a million readers, Nicci French, Peter James, Andrea Camilleri and Karine Giébel, the 2009 Polar SNCF prizewinner. As a long-established promoter of science fiction and fantasy literature, Fleuve Éditions, publishes major English and American authors, among them Michael Moorcock, China Miéville, David Eddings and Greg Keyes, but also French authors such as Christophe Lambert, Fabrice Colin and Michel Robert. April 2011 saw the creation of the Territoires collection for a younger readership, with imaginative, playful literature that resonates with current tastes. While not turning its back on more mainstream novels or detective fiction, the collection also embraces vampires, werewolves and zombies, which are much appreciated by readers in the "adultescent" phase.

Since January 2014, Fleuve Noir has become Fleuve Éditions.
