Angry Robot to Publish Two Books in Jay Posey’s Duskwalker Cycle series

By

The Author, Jay PoseyWe’re delighted, delirious and generally chuffed to bits to announce that we have acquired and will be publishing two books by science fiction author Jay Posey.

The books in question are parts one and two of the Duskwalker Cycle – a dark science fiction saga set in a post-apocalyptic America; a dying world where might prevails.

The first instalment, Three, will be published worldwide in Autumn 2013, with the second book following in 2014.

In Three, the world has collapsed and there are no heroes any more. But when a lone gunman reluctantly accepts the mantle of protector to a young boy and his dying mother against the forces that pursue them, a hero may yet arise…

Who’s this Jay Posey bloke, then? We’re glad you asked. Jay is a narrative designer, author, and screenwriter by trade. He started working in the video game industry in 1998, and has been writing professionally for over a decade. Currently employed as Senior Narrative Designer at Red Storm Entertainment, he’s spent around eight years writing and designing for Tom Clancy’s award-winning Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six franchises.

A contributing author to the book Professional Techniques for Video Game Writing, Jay has lectured at conferences, colleges, and universities, on topics ranging from basic creative writing skills to advanced material specific to the video game industry.

You can find him online at his website, jayposey.com, as well as on Twitter (@HiJayPosey), where you may begin stalking him and sending him messages of welcome and congratulations at your earliest convenience.

Book 1 was wonderful. I finished it the day I bought it, was one worthy of the saying “can’t put it down.” Now hurry up with book 2!

Reading the proof at mo. Well written with good narrative thrust and strong characters. Promising effort.
