Tor Books editor Patrick Nielsen Hayden acquired two novels from Charlie Jane Anders. The first, All the Birds in the Sky, described as a blending literary, fantasy, and science fiction about the decades long relationship between a sorceress and a computer genius, beginning in childhood, flowering into romance, and climaxing as they join forces to save the world. All the Birds in the Sky is slated for publication in 2015.
From Charlie Jane Anders:
“I am really thrilled to be working with Patrick and everyone else at Tor, after such a mind-blowingly fantastic experience on the short fiction side. When I started dreaming up a story about two such disparate characters, who come of age together and then face huge challenges as adults, I kept mentally comparing it to books like Little Brother and Among Others. So this is an astounding piece of luck.”
Charlie Jane Anders writes about science fiction for the popular blog io9 and won the Hugo for Best Novellete in 2011 for her Tor.com story, Six Months, Three Days, being adpated as an NBC mini series. Her latest story, the “The Cartogrphy of Sudden Death” can be read for free here.
