I've just closed a new book deal: Tor Books will publish "Radicalized," which tells four stories of hope, conflict, technology and justice in the modern world and near future in March 2019; along with the book deal is a major audiobook deal with Macmillan Audio and a screen deal with Topic Studios (a sister company to The Intercept) for one of the tales, "Unauthorized Bread."
I'll have lots more to say about this in the upcoming months! I just finished the last of the stories, "Masque of the Red Death" and I spent the week at the recording studio helping oversee a brilliant actor's recording of the audio for "Unauthorized Bread." Things are happening!
Cory Doctorow closed a six-figure agreement with Tor’s Patrick Nielsen Hayden for four new novellas. Russell Galen at Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary Agency, who represented Doctorow, said the novellas will be published as a single print volume by Tor under “the overall title of Radicalized” and individually, in audio, by Macmillan Audio. Slated for a March 2019 release, the novellas will, Galen said, “provide a unique take on some of the most urgent and painful issues of our time.” The first novella in the collection, “Unauthorized Bread,” has been optioned for film by Topic Studios.
