Otto Penzler, noted founder of the mystery and crime house Penzler Publishing, is teaming with Pegasus Books to launch Scarlet, a joint publishing venture specializing in psychological suspense aimed at female readers.


Penzler, speaking to the new venture, said the psychological suspense genre as “an exciting sub-genre of mystery fiction that has enjoyed a long history of success, both critically and commercially.”


Crime titles from Pegasus Books, according to Pegasus publisher Claiborne Hancock, have mostly been focused on historical mystery, detective novels, neo-noir and cozies. This new imprint, he explained, will add a popular category.
