John Scalzi Sells Fuzzy Nation to Tor Books; Rebooting a 1962 Science Fiction Novel

fuzzynation.jpgToday science fiction author and prolific blogger John Scalzi announced he’d sold a “reboot” of H. Beam Piper‘s 1962 science fiction novel Little Fuzzy to Tor Books. Publication is scheduled for next year.

Last week Scalzi revealed that he will revisit the classic novel in a new kind of book: “I took the original plot and characters of Little Fuzzy and wrote an entirely new story from and with them. The novel doesn’t follow on from the events of Little Fuzzy; it’s a new interpretation of that first story and a break from the continuity that H. Beam Piper established in Little Fuzzy and its sequels.”

Here’s more about the deal, straight from Scalzi’s blog: “I’m deeply pleased to have the book find a home with Tor, which has published all my novel-length fiction to date, and which is filled with excellent people who have been a delight to work with. I’m very happy to be working with them again.”
