Jonathan Oliver, commissioning editor of Solaris Books since the imprint’s acquisition from Games Workshop by Rebellion earlier this month, has commissioned a new SF novel from Eric Brown, Guardians of the Phoenix. The agent was John Jarrold, and the deal was for UK/US rights. The book is due for publication late in 2010.
“Eric has been a mainstay of Solaris since their very successful publication of his novel Helix,” said John Jarrold. “This proposal looks fascinating, and I can’t wait to read the finished novel!”
