Tor signs Finnish scifi author Hannu Rajaniemi for a three-book deal

Tor has made a three-book deal with The Quantum Thief author Hannu Rajaniemi. In addition to publishing The Quantum Thief in May 2011, Tor will publish two further books from the author.

From John Jarrold:

World rights in Hannu's debut novel, THE QUANTUM THIEF, plus two further books were acquired pre-emptively by Simon Spanton of Gollancz (who publish in September 2010) from agent John Jarrold for a high five-figure sum in pounds sterling, on the basis of one chapter, in 2008. Tor will publish in hardback in May 2011.

‘I've known Patrick for twenty-five years and his team at Tor will do a marvellous job – Hannu and I couldn't be happier,' said John Jarrold.

Oddles of buzz over this fellow. Publishers are expecting this release to be as big as Richard K. Morgan's debut.

Me, I'm just psyched for some good new novels with tight character-driven stories and actual spaceships instead of Steampunk and Urban Fantasy.
