Brand: Simon and Schuster
Origin: United States
When Dick Simon and Max Schuster founded Simon & Schuster in 1924, little did they know the significant impact their company would have on the world of publishing. From publishing the first-ever crossword puzzle book, to becoming America’s first paperback publisher in 1939, Simon & Schuster’s legacy is one of numerous industry firsts. Today, S&S is the publishing operation of CBS Corporation and home to some of the most recognizable names in publishing, including Stephen King, Khaled Hosseini, Jodi Picoult, Mary Higgins Clark and the Star Trek books. Simon & Schuster’s various divisions publish over 1800 titles annually, including critically acclaimed fiction and nonfiction hardcovers, mass market paperbacks, children’s books for all age and reading levels, audiobooks and e-books.
