I am very pleased to announce that Orbit UK has acquired bitter seeds plus two other novels by the very talented Ian Tregillis.
bitter seeds is a daring fantasy tale of the events of World War II – where the Nazis create superhumans who can throw fire, see the future and become invisible, while British wizards use black magic to hold off the German invasion . I was totally taken in by the delightfully sinister atmosphere of this novel, with its endlessly imaginative twists and superhero-like characters. Ian has a very bright future ahead of him and I’m delighted we were able to hire him in the UK.
bitter seeds was released in the US last year to huge acclaim – here’s what people have been saying so far:

“Mad English wizards battling twisted Nazi psychics? Yes, please, thank you. Tregillis’ debut has a jaw-dropping plot, beautiful descriptions and complex characters – an unstoppable Vickers of a novel’ Cory Doctorow
