Following Simon Spanton’s World Rights pre-empt for three books from new scifi novelist Hannu Rajaniemi earlier in October – on the basis of reading one chapter – German rights for all three science fiction novels were also pre-empted for a good five-figure sum in Euros at the Frankfurt Book Fair, by Carsten Polzin of Piper Verlag.

John Jarrold, the agent who concluded the original deal with Spanton, said, “This is wonderful. I know Carsten well and respect him greatly. He and Piper will do a great job with these novels – Hannu and I are both delighted. Congratulations to all involved!”

Other offers for Hannu’s novels from publishers across Europe are also being discussed by Gollancz’ Rights department.
