Night Shade Books acquires E.J. Swift debut novel

Night Shade Books have bought North American rights to E.J. Swift‘s début novel Osiris. The three book deal was negotiated by John Berlyne of the Zeno Agency.

An ingenious and engaging work of dystopian fiction, the eponymous Osiris is a retro-futuristic metropolis reminiscent of Huxley’s Brave New World. The novel tells of an unlikely romance across social divides between a glamorous young socialite grieving for her missing twin and an idealistic activist from the wrong side of the wall.

Osiris will be published in hardcover in summer 2012, with books two and three following in 2013 and 2014 respectively. All other rights are with Zeno Agency.
