Candas Jane Dorsey’s BLACK WINE, A PARADIGM OF EARTH, ICE AND OTHER STORIES, and (AT THE) FREAK SHOW have sold to Klaus Farin at Hirnkost (Germany) in a four-book deal by Milly Ruggiero and Wayne Arthurson of The Rights Factory.

"Securing German translation rights for Candas Jane Dorsey's speculative fiction novels was a solid piece of teamwork between myself and TRF Foreign Rights Agent Milly Ruggiero," says TRF Agent Wayne Arthurson. "It's especially exciting that the deal includes Candas' unpublished manuscript, (AT THE) FREAK SHOW, and hopefully this German deal will prompt interest from English language publishers for the manuscript."

BLACK WINE, A PARADIGM OF EARTH, ICE AND OTHER STORIES, and (AT THE) FREAK SHOW are set for publication in 2024, 2025, 2026, and 2027.

Scottish Canadian fantasy and science fiction author Dave Duncan’s THE TRAITOR’S SON and CORRIDOR TO NIGHTMARE, two posthumous manuscripts completed by the author before his death in 2018, have sold to Edward Willett at Shadowpaw by The Rights Factory agent Wayne Arthurson.

THE TRAITOR’S SON is a standalone science fiction novel about a colony world where everything that could go wrong already has. CORRIDOR TO NIGHTMARE is a standalone fantasy in which a woman is transported to land steeped in magic and violence.

"Dave Duncan was a well-loved writer of Science Fiction and Fantasy and a giant in the Canadian SFF community," says Arthurson. "To ensure that the two novels he completed before his death get to be published and read by his thousands of fans is an honour and a highlight of my career as a literary agent.”

THE TRAITOR’S SON and CORRIDOR TO NIGHTMARE are set for publication in late 2023 or early 2024.

Eric Beetner’s THE LAST FEW MILES OF ROAD has sold to Verena Rose at Level Best in a three-book deal by Wayne Arthurson at The Rights Factory.

This trilogy features a geriatric anti-hero whose search for justice leads him and his dog into a murder and mayhem in rural America.

"Eric's a prolific and fantastic writer. His thrillers remind me of old-school crime novels but with modern touches," said TRF agent Wayne Arthurson. "And the protagonist in The Last Few Miles of Road, Carter McCoy, is an amazing anti-hero. I'm pleased that with this three book deal, he'll be able to complete Carter's story."

THE LAST FEW MILES OF ROAD is set for publication in February 2024.
