The comes out July 30th, followed by a digital original from Robin Sloan this fall.  Next year, FSG will also traditionally publish Ellis’ first nonfiction book, Spirit Tracks. Here’s more about the book, from the release:

Dead Pig Collector introduces readers to Mister Sun, a very proficient businessman whose trade is the murder and spotless removal of human beings. Like any businessman, he knows each transaction is only as good as his client—and today’s client, in Los Angeles, has turned out to be so dangerously stupid that Mister Sun’s work and life are now in jeopardy.
