Titan buys Hocking novel

Titan will publish a novel by American fantasy author John C Hocking. 

Laurie Blum Guest, who heads up the recently formed US agency Re-Naissance, brokered a co-edition with the Titan Publishing Group on behalf of Perilous Worlds for Conan And The Living Plague

Titan Books' acquisitions editor Simon Ward acquired rights for UK, Ireland, and British Commonwealth with publication scheduled for September 2019. Perilous Worlds is a sci-fi and fantasy book press and will publish Conan And The Living Plague in the US later this month.

"Sent to recover treasure from a plague-wracked city, not only must Conan avoid its deranged survivors, but battle a deadly disease given humanoid shape," the synopsis reads. "To save himself – and perhaps the world — he allies with a scheming sorcerer to traverse a demon-haunted abyss in a desperate bid to destroy the Living Plague."
