Norilana Books has acquired reprint rights to the memorably titled novel "J." by award-winning author William Sanders.
J. is the first "purely science fiction" serious novel written by Sanders (as opposed to alternate history for which he is best known). J. is both a psychological paean and an adventure love story of three very unusual women of grit, passion, and madness, whose paths cross, defying space and, just possibly, time.
The volume will be published in trade hardcover as the lead title from the Science Fiction Imprint of Norilana Books, in October 2007, followed by a trade paperback edition in November 2007.
William Sanders is the critically acclaimed author of over 20 books and numerous works of short fiction and articles, including The Ballad Of Billy Badass And The Rose Of Turkestan, A Death On 66, The Next Victim, The Wild Blue And The Gray, Are We Having Fun Yet?, Journey To Fusang, Smoke, and award-winning stories "The Undiscovered" and "Empire". He is a two-time winner of the Sidewise Award for Alternate History and a multiple finalist for the Oklahoma Book Award, the Nebula, the Hugo, the Theodore Sturgeon, and the John W. Campbell Award. He is the senior editor of speculative fiction magazine Helix ( http://www.helixsf.com ) and lives in Oklahoma.
