Solaris buys new Eric Brown book

Jonathan Oliver, commissioning editor of Solaris Books, has acquired a new science fiction novel from Eric Brown, Kings of Eternity via agent John Jarrold. The deal is for UK/US rights and is due for publication in the spring of 2011.

“Eric has been one of the world’s most consistent – and consistently enjoyable – SF novelists for over two decades,” said John Jarrold. “He has a very happy home with Solaris and this marks his eighth book with them.”

Jonathan Oliver said: “It’s a great pleasure to be continuing to work with Eric, who is one of the shining stars of science fiction. I’m very excited about Kings of Eternity, as it is just one of the best SF novels I’ve read in the past ten years. A truly extraordinary book.”
