The pre-order period for Street Freaks by Terry Brooks is now open!
While the new Shannara novel The Skaar Invasion publishes June 19th, this new Brooks book publishes in October. I am excited for all of you to read it. I have been Terry's webmaster for almost twenty years and during that time many readers have asked if he'd be writing something unrelated to Shannara or Landover, a new book that would surprise his readers with a new world, new characters, new conflict.
Street Freaks is that new book, a wholly different type of story from what has come before. Here are more details about it:
It begins with a dire call-right before his father disappears and his skyscraper home's doors explode inward. It is the kind of thrilling futuristic story only Terry Brooks can tell.
"Go into the Red Zone. Go to Street Freaks." his father directs Ashton Collins before the vid feed goes suddenly silent. The Red Zone is the dangerous heart of mega-city Los Angeles; it is a world Ash is forbidden from and one he knows little about. But if he can find Street Freaks, the strangest of aid awaits—human and barely human alike. As Ash is hunted, he must unravel the mystery left behind by his father and discover his role in this new world.
You can pre-order three different signed editions right now:
- $35 signed trade hardcover
- $75 double-signed limited edition ($25 slipcase available here)
- $395 double-signed lettered edition (clamshell traycase included)
Brooks has long been the grandmaster of fantasy. Now he turns his hand to science fiction filled with what his readers love best: complex characters, extraordinary settings, exciting action, and a page-turning story. As a longtime Brooks fan, I am thrilled to share the gripping Street Freaks with you in October. Through it, Brooks reimagines his bestselling career yet again.
