Angry Robot has signed a two-book World English Plus Translation deal with science fiction author Jay Posey. The deal, concluded by Angry Robot Editor Lee Harris and Jay Posey, is for two books in the Duskwalker Cycle. The first installment, Three, will be published worldwide in Autumn 2013, with the second book to follow in 2014.
The series is a a dark science fiction saga set in a post-apocalyptic America; a dying world where might prevails. In Three, the first book of the Duskwalker Cycle, the world has collapsed, and there are no heroes any more. But when a lone gunman reluctantly accepts the mantel of protector to a young boy and his dying mother against the forces that pursue them, a hero may yet arise.
A Senior Narrative Designer at Red Storm Entertainment with a long career in the video gaming industry, Jay Posey said: "It's incredibly gratifying to have been invited to work with such an amazing group of hyper-intelligent and almost painfully attractive people, and it also conveniently completes Phase Three of my five-phase plan for world domination, so it's clearly win-win. For me, I mean."
Angry Robot Editor Lee Harris said: "I'd been hoping to find a great new post-apocalypse series for some time, and when Jay's manuscript hit my desk I couldn't have been more delighted. It has everything you want from a novel - a great story, great setting and a fantastic cast of characters."
