Titan Books has acquired a superhero story set in India and London, featuring nuclear plants, cricket, Bollywood and radical religious parties.
Fiction editor Cath Trechman bought world rights, excluding India, through John Berlyne and John Parker at Zeno Agency to the title,Turbulence by Samit Basu plus the unwritten sequel Resistance. It will be published in the UK on 27th July 2012 as a £7.99 paperback, and in the US the following summer. Hachette previously published the title in India.
The tale features a reinvented superhero and revolves around two questions—how would you feel if you actually got what you wanted? And what would you do if you could really change the world?
Trechman said: “Titan Books is thrilled to be publishing Samit Basu’s unconventional superhero adventure Turbulence and its sequel. Full of characters you cannot help but love, this action-packed, fantastical tale is totally irresistible and a perfect fit for the Titan fiction list.”
