GAVIN DEAS/SIMON SPURRIER/GIDEON DEFOE Elite: Wanted Elite: Nemorensis Elite: Docking is Difficult

Three tie-in novels set in the world of the new video game Elite: Dangerous. The bestselling video game of the 80s returns! Elite: Dangerous will be released in autumn 2014, and Gollancz will be publishing three original novellas at the same time. Gavin Deas will give us epic space battles, Simon Spurrier’s story follows a bounty hunter whose latest mark is more dangerous than expected, and Gideon Defoe provides a lighter touch with his tale of one boy’s attempt to escape from his dull backwater home planet. Gavin Deas is the pseudonym for the collaborative writing team of bestselling Gollancz authors Stephen Deas and Gavin Smith. Simon Spurrier is a major writer for the comic 2000AD, and in recent years has published multiple projects through US comic giants such as Marvel, D.C. and Dark Horse. Gideon Defoe was born in 1976 and wrote his first book about pirates to impress a girl. He is the author of the bestselling Pirates series, which was adapted into an animated film by Aardman.
