CAMPBELL, Calif., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today FastPencil announced the launch of "World Enough, and Time" – the first title in the classic sci-fi series "New World Trilogy," a spell-binding, fantasy adventure trilogy written by New York Times multiple best-selling author James Kahn, who is known for his books "Return of the Jedi," "Poltergeist" and "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom." "World Enough, and Time" carries the highly selective FastPencil PREMIERE imprint reserved for best-selling authors and experts.
"I'm reintroducing my 'New World Trilogy' with a fresh look and new original content that I know readers will enjoy," said author James Kahn. "Readers will meet the new narrator, Ishmael, in an added plot twist that sends waves through all three novels in the trilogy. FastPencil is a seamless way to publish, with speed-to-press, higher margins and a wide distribution reach and I'm thrilled to have FastPencil release this first in the series, 'World Enough, and Time.'"
"World Enough, and Time" is the beginning of the sci-fi fantasy trilogy where humans are a dying species in a post-apocalyptic world 200 years from now. Joshua experiences personal tragedy when a gryphon and a vampire kidnap his wife. He and his comrades – a centaur and an android – set out to rescue her in a surreal landscape filled with science-based mythological creatures. The odyssey is not over until Joshua and his warriors come face to face with the evil cabal whose goal is to see the human race extinct.
FastPencil will release a "New World Trilogy" title each year with "Time's Dark Laughter" coming out in 2013 and "Timefall" in 2014.
Kahn is a best-selling author who has worked with acclaimed filmmaker Steven Spielberg, "Star Wars" creator George Lucas and renowned sci-fi editor Judy Lynn Del Rey. His books include "Return of the Jedi," which held a spot on the New York Times Best-Seller List for months, as well as "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," "The Goonies" and "Poltergeist." He has also written for numerous television shows including "Star Trek: Voyager" and "Xena: Warrior Princess."
"When it comes to the genres of fantasy and science fiction, James Kahn is one of the most celebrated and successful writers out there," said Steve Wilson, FastPencil co-founder and CEO. "Fans of Kahn's work, as well as new sci-fi lovers, will be happy to add this trilogy – with new artwork, characters and plots – to their libraries."
Kahn is part of an illustrious number of best-selling authors who have signed with FastPencil PREMIERE for its proprietary partnerships in technology and distribution, speed to press, wider market reach, higher author royalties and greater transparency throughout the publishing process.
