Corvus extends Ridpath and Reading deals
10.12.10 | Katie Allen
Corvus has extended deals with two of its big name authors, Michael Ridpath and Mario Reading.
Publishing director Nic Cheetham acquired world English-language rights to one title from Reading, and two from Ridpath, through Oliver Munson at Blake Friedmann.
The Third Antichrist, the final instalment in Reading's Nostradamus trilogy, will be published in hardback in December 2011. It is the first of the trilogy to be published in hardback, with the release date moved from August.
Munson said: "It's great to see Corvus give Mario even more support with a hardback release for this series."
The third and fourth instalments in Ridpath's Fire and Ice series were also acquired by Cheetham, with the first title of the series, Where the Shadows Lie, to be published in February in paperback, and the second, 66 North, coming in hardback in June.
