, and sold to St. Martin's Press
. Along with St. Martin's Press, Henry Holt, and Farrar Straus Giroux, it is now part of the Holtzbrinck
In March 2006, Holtzbrinck forced Tor Books, which is owned by Holtzbrinck, to stop making its books available as eBooks via Webscriptions because of concerns regarding the lack of Digital rights management (DRM). These concerns abated in 2007 and selected Tor titles will soon be available as e-books via Baen and a variety of other online retailers.
Tor has won the Locus Magazine poll for best science fiction publisher every year since 1988.
