EVE: The Burning Life a new novel from Tor Books

Posted on March 31, 2010 by Flames

Tor Books, an imprint of Tom Doherty Associates, LLC—the largest publisher of science fiction in the world—and CCP Games are pleased to launch Hjalti Daníelsson’s grand new space opera set in the universe of EVE Online, PC Gamer’s 2009 MMO of the Year and the one of the largest MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) gaming universes with over 330,000 active subscribers. EVE: THE BURNING LIFE is on-sale nationwide as of Tuesday, March 30th.

A grand hybrid of space opera and military science fiction, EVE: THE BURNING LIFE stands on its own for readers looking for a rich and vast new universe full of danger and adventure. For both fans and newcomers, the novel offers a unique vantage point into the many wondrous realms within the EVE gaming world. “EVE is a deep, dark, expansive world full of wonder and often quite breathtaking events,” said Daníelsson. “I’ve been telling stories in there for a few years now and am always amazed at how much the world has to offer. It’s a very human, often very scary place.”

Hjalti Daníelsson has worked on EVE Online since the beginning, and currently serves as CCP’s main narrative creator for the harsh universe of New Eden, the setting for EVE Online. He is the author of more than eighty short stories set in the EVE Online universe, along with various other works. A visceral writer whose aggressive prose and grand operatic scope is reminiscent of Iain M. Banks and Joe Haldeman, Daníelsson’s storytelling talent and familiarity within the EVE universe make him the ideal candidate for a full-length novelization for fans and newcomers alike.

“The vast EVE universe is storied by the people who matter most, its players and fans,” said Eric Raab, Tor editor. “Our goal with the novels is to give not only EVE fans but science fiction fans in general, an exciting look into this great SF offering. THE BURNING LIFE takes us on an odyssey through worlds where the lines between good and evil have never been grayer.”

Set tens of thousands of years in the future, EVE Online is a breathtaking journey to the stars, to an immersive experience filled with adventure, riches, danger and glory. With over a 330,000 subscribers worldwide inhabiting the same virtual universe, EVE: Online boasts the largest, richest science fiction universe in gaming history, featuring a vast player-run economy and virtual professions ranging from commodities trader to mercenary, industrial entrepreneur to pirate, engineer to battle fleet commander, and much more.
