NEWS: Solaris concludes a Two-Book Deal with John Jarrold client, Ian Whates

John Jarrold has concluded a two-book deal for British SF writer Ian Whates with Christian Dunn of Solaris, the mainstream genre imprint of Games Workshop’s publishing division, BL Publishing. The first book, titled “The Noise Within”, is due for delivery in October 2009 and publication in 2010, with the sequel coming a year later. The deal is for UK and US rights.

The two books are wide-screen SF featuring war in space, AIs, and a mysterious ship that combines them both…

“This is a terrific deal for Ian,’ said
John Jarrold. ‘Having read the synopsis and opening section of The Noise Within, I can’t wait to read the finished article.”

Ian Whates has had short fiction published in a number of magazines. He has been nominated twice and shortlisted once for the BSFA Award for Best Short Fiction. “The Noise Within” will be his debut novel. Multi-award-winning SF novelist Ian Watson has already had this to say about Ian Whates:

“A bright new star rapidly in the ascendant,
Ian Whates' fluent and engaging stories range from witty humane SF reminiscent of a latterday Bob Shaw, through inventive fantasy, even unto vampiric horror. Ian here turns his highly versatile hand to galaxy-shaking space opera.”
