Timescape Books was a science fiction line from Pocket Books operating from 1981 to 1985.[1][2][3][4] Pocket Books is an imprint of Simon & Schuster

It was named after the Gregory Benford novel Timescape, which was not published by the Timescape imprint. The imprint was founded by David G. Hartwell. It published both original hardcover and reprinted mass market paperback novels. Many of the imprint's titles were nominees or winners of Hugo and Nebula awards, along with other major SF awards. It published more than 30 original hardcover works and over 100 paperback titles, but the imprint was not financially successful enough for the parent company at the time, as it was not producing major bestsellers.[5]
