In 2012, Bob announced that his new publisher would be Prime Books. Prime Books had contracted with Bob to write a new trilogy set in the Great Ship universe. In 2013, it was announced that the publicatiton deal had changed as a result of Barnes & Noble's influence, and the new trilogy would appear as a single large book -- with the working title The Memory of Sky -- most likely by early 2014.

Through 2007, Bob's primary U.S. publisher was Tor, a division of St. Martin's Press. The Tor site itself has a lot of interesting links and news, include an upcoming publication schedule for all the Tor authors/titles. Tor has a separate page for Bob on their site. Tor's latest Reed release was The Well of Stars in hardback in April 2005, with the paperback in Feruary 2007.

Golden Gryphon was the publisher of Bob's acclaimed first hardback collection of short stories, The Dragons of Springplace, in 1999. Bob returned to Golden Gryphon with a short story in the anthology The Silver Gryphon in 2003, to help them celebrate GG's 25th original book. Most recently, Golden Gryphon printed an original Robert Reed chapbook entitled Mere in September 2004 -- another story in the Marrow series, plus extensive author notes. The Cuckoo's Boys, a second collection of Bob's shorter works, was published by Golden Gryphon, in November of 2005.
