Angry Robot signs Trent Jamieson

News from Angry Robot: “Australian wunderkind Trent Jamieson has signed to Angry Robot for a new series of steampunk fantasy novels. Already attracting rave notices for his urban fantasy Death Most Definite (Orbit), Trent’s latest creation takes us to a dying land of decaying clockwork technology that is being devoured by a great rift in reality, the Roil.

The deal was arranged between Trent, agent Sophie Hamley, and AR’s publishing director Marc Gascoigne. It includes publication in the UK and US, in paperback, e-book and audio formats.

Roil is scheduled to hit bookstores in September 2011, with its sequel Night’s Engines following in late Spring 2012.”
