Pyr is Nine Years Old

It was nine years ago this month when Pyr released our first book, John Meaney's Paradox: Book I of the Nulapeiron Sequence. That was our first title, way back in March 2005. And here we are nine years later. And over 189 books later.

And what do we have to show for it?

Well, since you asked....

And Pyr just keeps getting better. Keep up the good work Lou and company.
I tend to read more Fantasy than Science Fiction, and love a lot of what you put out.
I also love the great cover art you guys acquire. The art is so beautiful that I can't help but get excited to delve into the story between those covers.
