Superposition, the TV Series?

superposition_tvIt’s an exciting time to be a science fiction author.  SF movies and TV shows are at an all-time high in popularity, and new shows are being made from novels all the time.  I’m excited to announce that the television rights to my quantum physics thrillers SUPERPOSITION and SUPERSYMMETRY have been picked up by eOne Entertainment Group, whose catalog includes The Walking Dead and a number of Syfy’s popular shows.

So what does this mean?  An “option” is just what it sounds like–there’s no guarantee that a TV show will actually be made.  There are a lot more novels that are optioned than are actually produced.  But it does mean that there are people working on putting the concepts of a show together, hiring a screenwriter, and moving things in that direction.  And my Hollywood agent (yes, I have a Hollywood agent–how cool is that?) is the same one that represents George R. R. Martin and Game of Thrones, so he and his agency kinda have some experience in the world of television.  Just a little.

The competition, as with everything in this business, is steep.  The odds are against it.  But a TV show made from one of my books?  That would be just about the coolest thing in the world.

David is a science fiction and fantasy author, which gives him the freedom to explore far beyond the limits of real life and the everyday. His books explores themes that skirt the edges of science and religion, such as human origins, the nature of truth, the certainty of death, and the nature of the soul. He does all his writing at home, where he lives with his wife and seven children. It’s a lively and clamorous place, full of fun, love, and chaos. His latest novel is SUPERPOSITION, a quantum physics murder mystery with the same mind-bending, breathless action as films like INCEPTION and MINORITY REPORT. His other works include the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel TERMINAL MIND, the historical fantasy QUINTESSENCE (Tor, 2013) and its sequel, QUINTESSENCE SKY.
