Jonathan Oliver, commissioning editor of Abaddon Books, has acquired Satan’s Reach, a second Weird Space SF novel by Eric Brown.Â This follows on from Ericâ€™s soon-to-be-published The Devilâ€™s Nebula. The novel will be delivered in 2013. The agent was John Jarrold and the deal is for UK/US rights.
Eric Brown said:Â “I’m excited about doing the second book in the Weird Space series – a seat-of-the-pants adventure entitled Satanâ€™s Reach about a telepath on the run from the Expansion authorities and the bounty hunter who will stop at nothing to get him – and what they find on a far-flung planet in the badlands ofÂ Satan’s Reach. It’s space opera with the emphasis on starships, aliens, exotic worlds – and the perennial threat from the Weird.”
