Solaris was founded in 2007 by the Black Library as an independent imprint. The author George Mann acted as Consulting Editor with the goal being to publish a mix of new and traditional science fiction, fantasy and horror. The idea being to fill the gap between the large-scale mass-market publishers who only backed prolific writers with huge readerships and the small genre press whose limited scope and distribution kept them in relative obscurity.
In 2009 Solaris was taken over by Rebellion to publish works alongside Abaddon Books.
