Orbit has acquired world rights to up-and-coming speculative fiction author Rich Larson’s stunning debut novel, ANNEX, about Violet, a young transgender girl who must fight to take back her city. In this astonishing work of science fiction, Rich introduces the world to one of the most affecting young protagonists since Nailer in Paolo Baciagalupi’s Shipbreaker.
At first it is a nightmare. When the invaders arrive, the world as they know it is destroyed. Their friends are kidnapped. Their families are changed.
Then it is a dream. With no adults left to run things, Violet and the others who have escaped capture are truly free for the first time. They can do whatever they want to do. They can be whoever they want to be.
But the invaders won’t leave them alone for long…
Combining all the thrills of an action movie with his award-winning, literary writing, Larson turns the alien invasion novel inside out. The first book is scheduled for July 2018, but in the meantime read some of Rich’s acclaimed short fiction on http://richwlarson.tumblr.com
