Second two-book US rights deal for Stephen Hunt

Tara Hiatt, Head of International Rights at HarperCollins UK, has concluded a second two-book deal for US rights in novels by UK fantasy novelist Stephen Hunt with Claire Eddy at Tor in New York, for a good five-figure sum in US dollars.

The Rise of the Iron Moon and Secrets of the Fire Sea are the third and fourth novels of six by Hunt in which Voyager’s Deputy Publishing Director Sarah Hodgson acquired World rights from literary agent John Jarrold; they follow on from the very successful novels in which Tor acquired US rights previously: The Court of the Air and The Kingdom Beyond the Waves.
