Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. - May 10, 2017 - Today, Bound announced that Nick Farmer will be joining its line-up of talented authors to create an upcoming fiction series for the publisher’s mobile storytelling platform.
Farmer’s series will be set far in the future, where humans have established an interstellar civilization by using extensive genetic engineering “augmentation” that makes faster-than-light travel possible by extending life spans and providing humans with the tools necessary to survive the harsh new environments they encounter.
Part one of the series will focus on a primitive human who was selected by a group of advanced researchers to undergo genetic therapy to turn him into a powerful warrior. The story is set to launch June 2017.
“Nick is a talented writer and linguist who is at heart a storyteller and world builder,” said Jamie Ortiz, Vice President of Story Development at Bound. “I’m looking forward to working with him to take advantage of all the resources the Bound platform offers to explore his story, such as maps, illustrations, and detailed sourcebook entries.”
Nick Farmer is a master of over two dozen languages. He created the Belter conlang for Syfy’s The Expanse, contributed to the best-selling introductory linguistics textbook published by MIT Press, and works to support endangered and indigenous languages.
“Bound is creating a new medium for the written word, and I think it will greatly enrich storytelling,” said Farmer. I’ve enjoyed my collaboration with them immensely so far, and I look forward to all the other amazing things that we can do.”
