Susan Howe, Rights Director at Orion, has sold US rights in three dragon fantasies by UK scifi novelist Stephen Deas to Ginjer Buchanan of Berkley Ace in a very good deal. The first book will be published in hardback in 2009.
World rights in the series, which opens with Deasís debut The Adamantine Palace(to be published in hardback and trade paperback in the UK in March 2009), were acquired by Simon Spanton at Gollancz from John Jarrold earlier this year.
"Ginjer and the people at Berkley Ace will do a terrific job with Steve. I canít wait to see their editions," said John Jarrold.
