NEWS: THE UNFINISHED LAND by Greg Bear Acquired for John Joseph Adams Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
In my role as editor of John Joseph Adams Books for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, I just made a new acquisition. Here’s the deal memo that just ran on Publishers Marketplace:
NYT bestseller and multiple Hugo and Nebula Award-winner Greg Bear’s THE UNFINISHED LAND, about a time of great peril—the sailing of the Spanish Armada—when a young man is transported in a wrecked fishing boat to a lost island at the top of the world, to be caught up in a war that pits gods against monsters and humans against the slavery of history, to John Joseph Adams Books, in a pre-empt, for publication in 2019, by Richard Curtis at Richard Curtis Associates.
