Pegasus Books, the indie which already distributes its e-books through Open Road, is expanding its partnership with the digital publisher. Pegasus is launching an e-book imprint with Open Road called Pegasus Classics. The digital-only line, which will also feature print on demand, is set to publish 12 titles in its first year in categories like literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, sports and mystery/thriller.

Elaborating on the line, Pegasus publisher Claiborne Hancock said it will "be an extension of our regular publishing program" and "give us the ability to publish new works where we can take some limited risk, as well as older books that are ready to attract new readers as an e-edition."

Pegasus Classics is set to release its first list in early 2013.
