Angry Robot, publisher of cutting-edge SF, F and WTF?! fiction, is delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of a new two-book Urban Fantasy series byÂ Tim Waggoner, author of the hugely popularÂ NekropolisÂ saga.
The deal was brokered between Tim’s agent Cherry Weiner of the Cherry Weiner Literary Agency and Angry Robot’s Senior Editor, Lee Harris for worldwide English, translation and audio rights.
It’sÂ Men In BlackÂ meetsÂ The Sandman. Meet the fine men and women of the NightWatch: a supernatural agency dedicated to hunting down rogue nightmares that escape from other realms when people dream about them, while ensuring that other dream-folk are allowed to live among the regular, human populationâ€¦ as long as they play by the rules.
The first book in the series -Â Night TerrorsÂ - will be published in the summer of 2014, with a follow-up volume scheduled for early 2015.
Tim WaggonerÂ said: “One of the many wonderful things about Angry Robot is that they don’t publish cookie-cutter fiction. They seek out the different, the unusual, and – in my case – the downright weird. It’s a joy to be working with these mad geniuses again.”
Angry Robot Senior Editor Lee HarrisÂ said: â€œTim’sÂ NekropolisÂ was one of the first books we published when we launched Angry Robot, and it has been popular with our readers ever since. I’m hugely looking forward to our working with him again more than 100 books later!â€
