Mike Braff is an editor at Del Rey Books, a science fiction and fantasy imprint of the world’s largest English-language trade book publisher, Penguin Random House. Perhaps best known for his work on Pierce Brown’s #1 New York Times Bestselling Red Rising Trilogy, Mike has edited and published critically acclaimed works by Jason M. Hough, Indra Das, Sylvain Neuvel, Alan Smale, Ted Kosmatka, and Matthew Stover. Raised on a steady diet of Tolkien, Crichton, King, Miéville, and Star Wars, he is searching for commercial science fiction and fantasy that appeals both to casual and core genre readers. Born and raised in the New York metro area and educated in Montréal (McGill University, B.A. 2007), Mike now spends his days in Brooklyn, NY with his rescued pit bull Ruby–photos of whom will be provided in abundance upon request.
