Pippa Wright, Rights Manager at Orion, has sold Japanese rights to SF debut The Quantum Thief by Finnish science fiction novelist resident in Scotland, Hannu Rajaniemi, to Hayakawa via sub-agent Miko Yamanouchi from Japan Uni.

World rights in The Quantum Thief, plus two further books, were acquired pre-emptively by Simon Spanton of Gollancz (who published in September 2010 and have sold over 16,500 trade paperbacks, 1,500 hardbacks and over 4,000 e-books) 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, Turkey and Finland.

Hayakawa also recently acquired Japanese rights to Hannuís story His Masterís Voice for their SF Magazine.
