About_Congratulations Hannu!

Hannu Rajaniemi

6th October 2008

It has been announced that one of New Media Scotland's Twitterist-in-Residence, Hannu Rajaniemi has secured a three-book deal with publisher Gollancz. The deal was sealed for the Edinburgh-based Finnish science fiction writer’s as yet untitled debut novel on the basis of one chapter.

‘Hannu’s first chapter was entirely enticing; yes, it was brimful of energy, originality and fascinating science but these were bonuses. What caught me and left me desperate for more was the masterful way he set up the characters, created relationships between them based on intrigue and need and suggested a rich past and a dangerous future for all concerned. I haven’t been this excited after reading just one chapter in a long, long time and consequently I’m delighted to be able to welcome Hannu to Gollancz.’

The novel is due for delivery in August 2009.
