Working name of US publisher and editor Louis Michael Aronica (1958-    ), with Bantam Books 1979-1994, as Vice President and Publisher of the Spectra sf list which he established in 1985, Vice President and Publisher of mass-market books 1989-1992, and Vice President and Deputy Publisher 1992-1994; he was also editor of the Foundation sf programme until it was merged into the Bantam list. In 1994 he became Senior Vice President and Publisher of the Berkley Publishing Group, at which point his involvement in sf became much less hands-on. As editor in his own right, he produced The Bantam Spectra Sampler (anth 1985 chap) and, more importantly, edited the Full Spectrum original anthology series beginning with Full Spectrum (anth 1988) with Shawna McCarthy; and ending with Full Spectrum #4 (anth 1993) with Betsy Mitchell and Amy Stout, which won a World Fantasy Award. As a knowledgeable reader of sf and fantasy, and as a senior figure in the publishing world for at least a decade, Aronica exercised considerable influence on the shape of the sf market. [JC]
