Tor Books will be publishing a novel based on EVE Online, penned by series writer, Hjalti Daníelsson, in his first novella outing, in what will likely become the first of a series of books designed to expand the game's intricate universe and lore.
"EVE is a phenomenal SF offering," said Eric Raab, Tor Editor. "The game is beyond awe-inspiring, and its intricacies deserve stories. Hjalti's storytelling skills shine in-game and in his short fiction. We at Tor are truly excited for his first foray into the novel form."
An epic hybrid of space opera and military science fiction, EVE: THE BURNING LIFE stands on its own for science fiction readers looking for a new universe to explore. It also promises to compliment the vast EVE backstory by providing fans a personal narrative through new realms of this massive world. "Though the player-driven drama unfolding daily in EVE Online is the essence of our virtual world, CCP firmly believes that EVE can transcend the boundaries of a single medium to offer new ways of experiencing its richness" said Thor Gunnarsson, VP of Business Development at CCP. "We are thrilled to collaborate with the incredibly talented team at Tor Books to bring a taste of the EVE universe to sci-fi readers around the world."
So EVE fans can expect the game's boundaries to expand with this first foray, which will be made available for purchase from November this year.
