The brains behind the award-winning PS Publishing, Peter Crowther, has signed to Angry Robot for a series of apocalyptic science fiction novels. The Forever Twilight trilogy sees a blinding light engulf the planet. As the light fades to utter darkness, only a handful of survivors remain. That is, until the hordes of vanished humanity begin to return – each one of them changed somehow.
Sounds a bit like the early hours at a typical SF convention – or is that just me?
Publishing Director Marc Gascoigne gushed: “Reading Darkness Falling gave me the same thrills I’ve got from recent Stephen King novels and Justin Cronin’s The Passage, and that was it – I decided we just had to have this dystopian masterpiece for Angry Robot”.
Darkness Falling will be released internationally in October of this year in paperback, eBook and audio formats, with successive volumes to follow in 2012 and spring 2013.
Peter Crowther added: “I’m absolutely delighted that Angry Robot has taken up the Forever Twilight SF cycle. In a short time the AR gang has put together an impressive list and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. They’re a young imprint, of course, but that’s to their credit: hungry, energetic and incredibly supportive. What more could one ask for?”
So, a dystopian SF trilogy, with changed people, worldwide catastrophes and bloody great writing? Now that’s an Angry Robot book!
