British author Steven Savile has joined the John Jarrold Literary Agency. Savile is currently finishing a trilogy of vampire fantasy novels (Inheritance, Dominion, Retribution) tied in to Games Workshop's popular Warhammer Fantasy games. Inheritance was released in February 2006 in the UK and March in the US.
Steven is also adapting Pat Mills' Celtic barbarian Slaine for Black Flame. The first novel, Exile, is due for Christmas 2006.
In the US he has his first hardcover, Elemental (co-edited with Alethea Kontis), coming from Tor in May 2006.
Elemental, like Redbrick Eden before it, is an anthology Steven has put together to raise money for those in need. Where Redbrick Eden raised nearly 10,000 dollars from the homeless charity, Shelter, Elemental is raising money for Save the Children's Tsunami Relief efforts and includes a veritable who's who of the global SF&F community including: Brian Aldiss, Kevin J. Anderson, Brian Herbert, Sherrilyn Kenyon (writing as Kinley McGreggor), Stel Pavlou, Martha Wells, David Drake, Joe Haldeman, Larry Niven and a whole host more.
Steven was a runner up in the British Fantasy Awards in 2000, and in 2002 won the Writers of the Future award. He's also co-edited, with John Pelan, two collections of Fritz Leiber's classic horror stories, and published a number of short stories and novellas.
'Steve is a major addition to the agency,' said John Jarrold. 'He has ideas for many new projects!'
Steven Savile added: 'I am absolutely delighted to have joined forces with John. John is someone I have been aware of within the genre for a very long time, from his role as editor with Legend and then Earthlight, and then more recently as an agent of several writers I very much admire.'
