Science fiction novelist Charles Stross has inked a “ a major six figure deal” with Tor Books to publish a new trilogy set in the alternate history world of his Merchant Princes series.
Caitlin Blasdell of Liza Dawson Associates negotiated the deal. “I couldn’t be happier than if a sequel to Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land was discovered,” quipped senior editor David Hartwell in the release.
Here’s more about the series: “Tor published the first six books in the series to great acclaim beginning in 2004 and looks forward to publishing the new books starting in 2015 … In 2008, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman devoted an entire article to analysing the series from an economic standpoint, and, in 2009 attended the World Science Fiction convention, opening the show with a 75-minute conversation with Stross.”
