PRESS RELEASE: Journalist Saxon Bullock signs with John Jarrold Literary Agency!

Posted by cervantor on AM00000030000000029 1, 2008

Saxon Bullock has been working as a freelance writer since 2000, and has written for a variety of magazines and websites including SFX, DVD Review, Channel4.Com and Hotdog magazine. Saxon has just completed his first novel—an epic science fiction tour-de-force entitled “The Hypernova Gambit”.

”Once in a while I see a novel that grabs me from the first page,” said John Jarrold. “That was the case here, as it was when I read Ken MacLeod’s debut, “The Star Fraction”, when I worked with Random House in the mid-90s. I knew within the first six pages that I wanted to publish Ken, and I was equally certain within six pages of starting Saxon’s novel that I wanted to represent him. I got that pricking of my thumbs that every editor and agent loves, and sees all too seldom! The Hypernova Gambit is a novel for which the phrase “wide-screen SF” might have been invented. Its characters, color, pace and plotlines are truly wonderful, and Saxon’s prose sparkles with invention and wit. This is really special, and stands with any of the SF authors who have risen to the top of the genre in the last ten years.”

High praise indeed 🙂 I’ll be very interested to see what publisher this lands with…
