Military science-fiction?

Publishers Lunch also reports that a new move follows the discovery that readers of military history also like science fiction and fantasy.

 Osprey Publishing will launch Osprey Adventures, devoted to subjects outside their traditional military niche, including myths & legends, horror, secret societies, and conspiracies. Project manager Joseph McCullough said in a statement "we've learned that a large proportion of Osprey's military history readers are also fans of science fiction and fantasy." He added: "Furthermore, many of the hobbies with which Osprey books are traditionally associated also encompass more fantastical subjects. By creating new products that cater to these interests, Osprey will continue to serve many of its core readers with their broad interests, while also expanding its reach into a new consumer demographic."
