Announcing “Unlocked,” a Original Novella by John Scalzi

Lock In, Hugo-award winning author John Scalzi’s exciting new venture into near-future thrillers, is coming August 26, but we at are way too pumped up to wait that long. We’re pleased to announce that on May 7th we will be publishing “Unlocked: An Oral History of Haden’s Syndrome.” “Unlocked” traces the medical history behind a virus that will sweep the globe and affect the majority of the world’s population, setting the stage for Lock In.

The novella will be priced at $1.99, and although we will later be releasing it for free, as we do with all our original fiction, the ebook version will contain a one chapter preview of Lock In for your reading pleasure. It is now available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes.
