Orion Imprint?[edit]

The current Orion page lists Gateway, Gollancz, Orion Books, The Murder Room, Weidenfeld & Nelson, Spring, Trapeze, Orion Non-Fiction, and Orion Audiobooks, but there doesn't seem to be any mention of "Phoenix." Judging from the Internet Archive, it was dropped somewhere between 2014-10-19 and 2015-09-10? --tronvillain (talk) 14:14, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Ah, it was dropped at the beginning of January 2015: "As our very own George Weidenfeld celebrates his 95th birthday, we have decided to streamline our publishing for the digital age so that our paperback titles, previously published under Phoenix, will now appear under the Weidenfeld & Nicolson imprint in hardback, ebook and paperback editions."
