Lost founder J. J. Abrams and Alive in Necropolis novelist Doug Dorst will team up for a new novel at Little, Brown and Company’s Mulholland Books imprint. Publication is set for 2012.
According to the release, Abrams created the idea and Dorst (pictured, via) will write the book. John Schoenfelder will edit and Jay Mandel of WME negotiated the deal.
Little, Brown publisher Michael Pietsch had this statement: “Doug and J.J.’s story will explode the bonds of the novel in ways no book has ever done … It is a privilege to work with this wildly creative team of writers and thinkers.”
