Sascha Mamczak of Heyne Verlag has pre-emptively acquired German rights for the new dragon fantasy trilogy by debut author Stephen Deas for a high-five-figure sum in Euros. Simon Spanton of Gollancz only acquired World rights in the books last week on the basis of a proposal and early chapters.

‘We are extremely excited about this! It's a great fantasy adventure. A highly talented new author!’ said Sascha Mamczak.

‘Both Stephen and I are delighted - and he is more than a little flabbergasted!’ said the author’s agent, John Jarrold. ‘The fact that his wife, Michaela, is German only adds to the delight they both feel at this wonderful deal. Congratulations to Krystyna Kujawinska, Gollancz’s Foreign Rights Director, for sorting this out so rapidly.’

The first book in the series, titled The Adamantine Palace, is due for delivery in 2008 and publication by Gollancz in the summer of 2009.
