Sci-fi novelist Ernest Cline’s new book has been acquired by Cornerstone's Century imprint.
Editor Francesca Pathak bought UK and Commonwealth rights from Kate McLennan at Abner Stein on behalf of Kirsten Neuhaus and Yfat Reiss Gendell at Foundry Literary + Media.
Cline is the author of Ready Player One and Armada, both previously published by Century.
Pathak said: “Ready Player One is one of my favourite books of all time, and the whole team has loved publishing Armada. Ernie is a dream author and I can’t wait to publish his new book.”
Cornerstone m.d. Susan Sandon said: “Century and Arrow are proud to publish Ernie Cline and I am delighted to have this new deal in place. Both Ready Player One and Armada have been bestsellers in all our territories and with the film of RPO yet to come I know out partnership will continue to go from strength to strength.”
The new book will be a Century hardcover and an Arrow paperback.
