A little over four months ago we published Nightshades by Melissa F Olson—a gruesome tale of special agents and vampires. It’s a great book, but don’t just take our word for it—urban fantasy legend Charles de Lint said of it:
Everything rings true in this short novel. The pace is fast, but the characterization runs deep, and under Olson’s deft control, it feels as though we’re reading these concepts for the very first time.
So, when the opportunity presented itself to commission more in the series we jumped at the chance! Book two in the series—Switchback—will be published in the fall of 2017, with book three—Outbreak—to follow in 2018.
Melissa told us:
I have been so gratified by the response to Nightshades, and I’m honored to once again be working with Lee Harris and the Tor.com team to bring more of Alex and Lindy’s world to the page. Nightshades was always designed to be the kickoff to a series, so it’s really exciting to have this story moving forward just as I’d hoped.
Switchback and Outbreak were commissioned by Tor.com senior editor Lee Harris through Ethan Ellenberg of the Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency.
