Simon Spanton at Gollancz and Jacob Weisman at Tachyon have acquired an as-yet-unnamed short story collection by Hannu Rajaniemi. The agent was John Jarrold.
Tachyon will publish a limited-edition hardback in the spring of 2015, and will have those rights for a first printing edition for twelve months. Then Gollancz will publish a trade hardback edition in 2016, to be followed by a mass-market paperback. Gollancz have also acquired world rights for the book.
Hannu’s debut novel, THE QUANTUM THIEF, excited huge interest – and major sales – when it was published by Gollancz in the UK and Tor in the US. THE FRACTAL PRINCE followed to equal acclaim in 2012 and the third book in his debut SF series, THE CAUSAL ANGEL, will be published in July 2014.
