A New Home for Seanan McGuire’s Toby Daye and InCryptid Series

In 2009, Seanan McGuire published her debut novel, Rosemary and Rue, to great acclaim. This novel not only launched the enduringly popular October Daye urban fantasy series, but formed the bedrock upon which Seanan’s career would bloom. Since this auspicious beginning, Seanan has so far published 18 novels in the series, alongside novellas and shorter fiction.

Three years later, Seanan would publish Discount Armageddon, the first book in her equally-popular InCryptid series, and one which has so far reached 13 novels, plus novellas and shorter works.

As the publisher of three more of Seanan’s series (Wayward Children, Alchemical Journeys and the Up-and-Under books), we could not be more delighted to welcome October Daye and InCryptid into the Tor Publishing Group family.

Tor Executive Editor Lee Harris said:

“When I joined Tor, Seanan was right at the top of my list of authors I wanted to bring on board. In the last eight years I’ve worked with her on eighteen books and a handful of short stories, and she remains not only one of my favourite people to work with, but one of my favourite people to read. Bringing Toby Daye and InCryptid to Tor is a dream come true, because all the Seanan is just the right amount. I’ll be working with my brilliant colleague Oliver Dougherty to make sure Seanan’s books are given all the love they deserve.”

Seanan said: 

“I am absolutely delighted to be continuing these dear-to-my-heart series with Lee, and with the wonderful editorial team at Tor. I know I will be in good hands, and I’m so excited for all my readers to see what’s coming next. Big things ahead. Big, wonderful, terrible things….”

The first Tor book in the InCryptid, Installment Immortality, will be published in spring 2025, followed by our first October Daye book in the fall of that year.

The deal for North American rights for both series was brokered between Tor Executive Editor Lee Harris and Diana Fox of Fox Literary.
