Angry RobotÂ is delighted to announce the acquisition of the worldwide rights to two epic fantasy novels byÂ James A. Moore, the first of which,Â Seven Forges, will be published in October.
The deal for Worldwide English rights in books, ebooks and audiobooks was concluded by Angry Robot Managing DirectorÂ Marc GascoigneÂ and Donald Morhaim in New York.
The Seven Forges are a range of impassable mountains, far to the north of the settled lands of Fellein. From time to time explorers venture up beyond the Blasted Lands in search of a way over them and the promise of legendary riches, but without success.
Now Captain Merros Dulver has found a path, and encountered, at last, the half-forgotten people who dwell there. And it would appear they were expecting him.
James A. MooreÂ cut his teeth in the industry writing for Marvel Comics and authoring over twenty role-playing supplements for White Wolf Games. He also penned the White Wolf novelsÂ Vampire: House of SecretsÂ andÂ Werewolf: Hellstorm. Mooreâ€™s first short story collection,Slices, sold out before ever seeing print.
He is currently working on three new novels:Â Congregations of the Dead, the as-yet unnamed sequel toÂ Seven Forges, andÂ Boom Town, and he recently completed his latest Jonathan Crowley novel,Â Cherry Hill.Â He lives in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia.
JamesÂ said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be working with Angry Robot Books and the amazing team they’ve assembled. They’ve been enthusiastic, caring and attentive, and now that the contracts have been signed I’m happy to report to the entire team that their loved ones will be returned home safely in the very near future, most of them no worse for the wear.”
