J.J. Abrams will work with Mulholland Books on S., an book idea conceived and developed by Abrams but written by Alive in Necropolis author Doug Dorst (pictured, right).
Abrams (pictured, left) is the producer, writer, and director behind projects like Lost, Star Trek and Super 8. He will support the book through his Bad Robot production company. Check it out:
[S] is Abrams’s first foray into publishing and will be released by Mulholland Books/Little, Brown and Company on October 29, 2013. At the core of this multilayered literary puzzle of love and adventure is a book of mysterious provenance. In the margins, another tale unfolds—through the hand-scribbled notes, questions, and confrontations of two readers. Between the pages, online, and in the real world, you’ll find evidence of their interaction, ephemera that bring this tale vividly to life.
