We’ve just received word from Tor Books editor David Hartwell that beloved author Charles Stross has just committed to a new trilogy of novels set in the Merchant Princes universe. Tor published the first six books in the series to great acclaim beginning in 2004 and looks forward to publishing the new books starting in 2015. Stross has been nominated for more than ten Hugo Awards and won twice to date.
“Charles Stross is one candidate for the best SF writer of the decade, and to relaunch The Merchant Princes with three new books has been one of my great editorial hopes,” said Hartwell. “I couldn’t be happier than if a sequel to Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land was discovered!”
