From Publishers Marketplace:
Fiction: Sci-Fi/ Fantasy
Debut author Paige Orwin’s THE INTERMINABLES, a puzzle-box urban fantasy pitched as Jim Butcher meets China Mieville, about two reluctant heroes asked to save the world again, years after a magical cataclysm has changed the shape of evil, to Phil Jourdan of Angry Robot, in a nice deal, in a two book deal, for publication in 2016, by Sara Megibow of kt literary (World).
What is a puzzle-box urban fantasy you ask? Paige writes, “Some of my greater influences are humor writers like Pat McManus and Bill Bryson, and humor deals in unexpected angles. Third options. Expectations met or unmet. Ideas raised and discarded and raised again (at speed, if that idea happens to be a garden rake). Perhaps due to this, The Interminables explains itself in scattered pieces and punchlines. It’s more entertaining to both write and read, in my opinion, and besides, I wanted to get to the action and the giant monsters.” – read Paige’s post on puzzle-box urban fantasy here.
