For Simon & Schuster’s new SF imprint, Saga Press, Joe Monti took world English rights, in a six-book deal, to Chuck Wendig’s Miriam Black series. The books follow the titular heroine, who is cursed with the ability to see the death of every person she touches. Through the deal, Saga will release the three backlist titles in the series—Blackbirds, Mockingbird, and The Cormorant (all originally released by Angry Robot)—first as e-books, then as trade paperbacks. The deal also covers three new titles. The books are currently in development as a TV series with the cable channel Starz. Wendig was represented by Stacia Decker.
