Jove Books, formerly known as Pyramid Books, is an American paperback publishing company, founded in 1949 by Almat Magazine Publishers (Alfred R. Plaine and Matthew Huttner). The company was sold to the Walter Reade Organization in the late 1960s. It was acquired in 1974 by Harcourt Brace (which became Harcourt Brace Jovanovich) which renamed it to Jove in 1977 and continued the line as an imprint. In 1979, they sold it to The Putnam Berkley Group, which is now part of the Penguin Group.
In the 1960s Pyramid published a few novelizations of Irwin Allen television shows, including one for Lost in Space and two others for The Time Tunnel, as well as Theodore Sturgeon's movie novelization for Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
