The Zeno Literary Agency has taken on Indian SFF author Samit Basu as a client. Samit is a rising star on the scene on India Ė his Gameworld Trilogy, hit the best seller lists over there and he joins Zeno having sent his novel Turbulence into the agency.
Turbulence is due to be published in the Autumn by Hachette India.
Samit has had a number of works for children published by Scholastic and is active in the world of comics graphic novels (with work published by Virgin Comics). He has recently completed a GN project with Mike Carey and is working on a number of Bollywood screenplay projects.
"Itís an extremely clever and terrifically inventive take on the Superhero genre and one with a very fascinating Indian slant. Full of energy, intrigue, action and verve, Turbulence packs a serious punch and its central plot poses two key questions... How would you feel if you actually got what you wanted? And what would you do if you could really change the world? Weíre very much looking forward to working with Samit and to introducing his wonderful work to a wide international audience," the agency told SFcrowsnest.
