Acquisition Announcement and Cover Reveal: THE GOBLIN EMPEROR (UK Edition) by Katherine Addison
Solaris, the multiple award-winning publisher of cutting-edge science fiction and fantasy, is thrilled to announce that it has acquired the UK rights to The Goblin Emperor, the stunning Hugo and Nebula award-nominated debut novel from the incredible Katherine Addison.
Acquiring Editor Michael Rowley had this to say:
“When I first read The Goblin Emperor back in 2015, I was immediately enchanted by its blend of courtly intrigue, sympathetic protagonist and superb storytelling.
For the cover, we wanted something visually stunning, that evoked the intricacy of the book, the attention to detail the author shows with her masterful plotting, and the pure joy that the story brings. UK designer James Jones did a fantastic job. From the use of colours and foils to the blend of subtle and iconic imagery, he’s produced something truly stunning.
I’m thrilled that this will be my first acquisition to be published at Rebellion and hope this first UK edition brings a wonderful book to a whole new readership.”
The Goblin Emperor is out in the UK from Solaris in March, 2019. You can pre-order it here.
The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison
EVEN ON THE THRONE, YOU’RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR WITS—OR YOUR HEART.
Maia, the youngest, half-goblin son of the Emperor, has lived his entire life in exile, distant from the Imperial Court and the deadly intrigue that suffuses it.
But when his father and three sons in line for the throne are killed in an “accident”, he has no choice but to take his place as the only surviving rightful heir.
Surrounded by sycophants and overwhelmed by the burdens of his new life, he can trust nobody. Amid the swirl of plots to depose him, offers of arranged marriages, and the spectre of the unknown conspirators, he must quickly adjust to life as the Goblin Emperor.
Vividly imagined fantasy of court intrigue and dark magics…nominated for the Nebula and Hugo awards, and a world fantasy award finalist, Katherine Addison’s The Goblin Emperor is not to be missed!
