Gollancz will publish in the UK
Gollancz (UK) and Blackstone (US) have bought The Silent Gods Quartet by debut author Justin Travis Call. Rights have also gone to Bragelonne (France), Blanvalet/Penguin Random House (Germany), and Luitingh Sijthoff (Netherlands). Gillian Redfearn, Gollancz publishing director, did the deal through Danny Baror at Baror International.
Redfearn said: [Call has] crafted a story of incredible originality and vibrancy that's unafraid to explore the unexpected consequences of heroic actions, and creates a distinctive and powerful new fantasy series." The quartet asks the question: what if the boy hero of so many epics and the malevolent force threatening his world were one and the same? Master of Sorrows, the first novel in the quartet, will be out in February. The author lives in Idaho.
