News from Angry Robot: â€œAustralian 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), Trentâ€™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 ARâ€™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 Nightâ€™s Engines following in late Spring 2012.â€
