NEWS: New Series by Carrie Vaughn Acquired for John Joseph Adams Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)

In my new role as editor of John Joseph Adams Books for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, I just acquired two books in a new series by Carrie Vaughn:

New York Times bestseller Carrie Vaughn’s BANNERLESS, a novel in which an investigator must discover the truth behind a mysterious death in a world where small communities struggle to maintain a ravaged civilization decades after environmental and economic collapse, to John Joseph Adams Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), in a two-book deal, for publication in Spring 2017, by Seth Fishman at The Gernert Company. (North American)

Fans of Carrie’s (and/or my work in the short form) may recognize from that description that the book is set in the same milieu as Carrie’s Hugo-nominated story, “Amaryllis,” which I originally published way back in issue #1 of Lightspeed, and also her story “Bannerless,” which appeared in my anthology, The End Has Come.
