Two more from Christopher for Angry Robot

Angry Robot has signed author Adam Christopher for another two titles, with the first book in the deal to be a sequel to his debut, Empire State.

Editor Lee Harris bought world English rights through Stacia Decker at the Donald Maass Agency. Book one, The Age Atomic, will be published in May 2013 and will revisit the science-fiction noir world of Empire State, with Hang Wire, a story about ancient gods and serial killers, to follow within a year.

Harris said: "I couldn't be happier to have more of Adam's books on our list. Adam joins a very exclusive club—he is now one of only three authors to have placed four books with Angry Robot. We're thinking of getting them membership cards."

Christopher's second novel, from an earlier deal, Seven Wonders, will be published in September 2012.
