Abaddon Books, Rebellion Publishing’s cutting-edge imprint for smart and subversive fiction is excited to announce The True History of the Strange Brigade™ – an anthology fiction based on the upcoming pre-war adventure video game.
Including stories by Cassandra Khaw, Gaie Sebold, Tauriq Moosa, Guy Adams and Jonathan L. Howard, The True History of the Strange Brigade™ is to be published by Abaddon in January 2018.
There are remote corners of the British Empire where the supernatural lurks and the shadows linger, where few dare go and fewer return. This is the world of the little-known Department of Antiquities – the so-called “Strange Brigade” – tasked with confronting ancient and terrible evils that threaten us all. But who are these mysterious adventurers?
Join rising stars Cassandra Khaw, Gaie Sebold, Tauriq Moosa, Guy Adams and Jonathan L. Howard as they delve into the hidden origins of some of the Brigade’s finest, and marvel at these never before seen tales of our fearless and unflinching heroes…
Abaddon Editor-in-Chief David Moore had this to say:
“Working for a publishing house that’s also a video games studio is an extraordinary opportunity. When we started to see the concept art for Strange Brigade™ go up on the wall, I jumped on it. It’s a fun, engaging game, and the chance to get in at the ground floor – not just to tell the stories of the Brigade, but in small part to help shape the game itself – is amazing.”
Contributing authors commented:
“If ever there was a brigade I would happily join, it’s a Strange one. The world and the characters of the Strange Brigade are rich, fun and right up my street.” – Guy Adams.
“I was delighted to have the chance to contribute to something that feels so engaging and quirky. I loved writing Nalangu, and only hope other people enjoy her as much as I did.”
Strange Brigade™ is coming soon to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
