Hannah Whitaker, Senior Rights Manager at Orion, has sold Turkish rights to highly-praised SF debut The Quantum Thief by Finnish science fiction novelist resident in Scotland, Hannu Rajaniemi, to Pegasus.
World rights in The Quantum Thief, plus two further books, were acquired pre-emptively by Simon Spanton of Gollancz (who published in September 2010) from agent John Jarrold for a high five-figure sum in pounds sterling, on the basis of one chapter. Rights have also been sold in the USA, Germany, Spain and Finland.
And a fourth reprint of Gollancz’ trade paperback edition has just been confirmed.
