Ahead of news of our brand new theatre outing for 2020, Bad Bat Books are pleased to announce that we're publishing our first novel - The Future Boys by Steve Jordan - on December 16th! It's currently available to pre-order for Kindle now!
Here's some words from Steve about the novel, and what you should expect from it.
"It will tell the story of the entire Future Boys saga (except Empire of Monsters, which is definitely its own thing). I’m re-telling the three original theatre productions - Dead Static, Pilgrim Shadow and King Chaos - plus the two audio episodes, and the stories of what would have been the other four episodes of the audio series - to make one glorious package."
"So it’s effectively 6 hours of script, fleshed out into a novel with some extra bits to bring it all together, comprised of essentially two mini-books – the story of the plays, and the story of the audio series. This is something I’ve thought about for a while, but as the funding for the rest of the audio series didn’t materialize, I’ve gone for what I feel is the best option to tell the stories. It would be great to do an audio book of it too with the audio series cast at some point, time allowing."
A paperback version will also be released in 2020, along with a paperback of Empire of Monsters - a previous Future Boys publication that we released in 2018.
