Maurice Broaddus is a novelist, short story writer and editor, and one of the finest people you could ever hope to meet! We couldn’t be happier to announce the acquisition of a new fantasy novella from Maurice, entitled Buffalo Soldier.
Having stumbled onto a plot within his homeland of Jamaica, former espionage agent, Desmond Coke, was caught between warring religious and political factions. All parties vied for control of a mysterious boy named Lij Tafari. Wanting the boy to have a chance to live a free life, Desmond assumes responsibility for him and flees. A story filled with assassins, intrigue and steam men.
“Publishing with Tor has always been a dream of mine. As an added bonus, you have no idea how happy I am to be working with the great Lee Harris again!”
Maurice’s editor, Lee Harris, said:
“Maurice’s superb King Maker was the first novel I ever stood up for in an acquisitions meeting, and championed, and that book eventually spawned two equally brilliant sequels. I am unbelievably excited to have Maurice as part of the Tor.com family. He’s a world-class talent.”
Buffalo Soldier was acquired by Lee Harris from Jennifer Udden of the Barry Goldblatt Literary agency, and will be published in early 2017.
