I’m delighted to announce that my 1995 Nebula Award-winning novel The Terminal Experiment and my 1997 Seiun Award-winning novel Illegal Alien are both coming back into print.

Ginjer Buchanan at Ace Science Fiction just bought U.S. rights to them both, and Adrienne Kerr at Penguin Canada separately just bought Canadian rights. Ace will do them in mass-market, and Penguin Canada will do them in premium mass-market (an inch taller than regular mass-market, the format favored these days for bestsellers). Penguin Canada will have their editions out in time for Christmas.

“Robert J. Sawyer won the Nebula Award with this novel, and I would have voted for it. There is so much of interest in this book — artificial intelligence, a good murder mystery, a nicely realized near-future, and, as I’ve come to expect from Sawyer’s novels, thought-provoking philosophy. This is science fiction at its most thought provoking.” — SF Site on The Terminal Experiment

“Innovative, imaginative, and pioneering — not just excellent sf but also excellent popular literature … a fast-paced, exciting book that shows the imaginative heights to which science fiction writers can climb when they combine sf with something else.” — The Washington Post on Illegal Alien
