Well, we’ve got some brilliant news for Czech-based fans of weird Lovecraftian horror and ‘big idea’ sci-fi: Ada Hoffmann‘s The Outside will be published in the Czech Republic!

The deal was made with publisher Triton to bring Ada’s The Outside to fans, who can expect to see a Czech version in the novel within 18 months.

We dropped Ada a line to let her know the news, who said: “I’m delighted to make my first foreign language sale to Triton. I can’t wait to see how Czech fans respond to The Outside!”

The novel will be published in English in June. Check out the synopsis below for more info, and click here for a blog from Ada on how Lovecraft inspired her work.

“Autistic scientist Yasira Shien has developed a radical new energy drive that could change the future of humanity. But when she activates it, reality warps, destroying the space station and everyone aboard. The AI gods who rule the galaxy declare her work heretical, and Yasira is abducted by their agents. Instead of simply executing her, they offer mercy – if she’ll help them hunt down a bigger target: her own mysterious, vanished mentor. With her homeworld’s fate in the balance, Yasira must choose who to trust: the gods and their ruthless post-human angels, or the rebel scientist whose unorthodox mathematics could turn her world inside out.”
