Solaris to publish Yoon Ha Lee’s debut YA trilogy, Lancers, for the UK

Solaris is delighted to announce the acquisition of Yoon Ha Lee’s debut YA trilogy, Lancers, with book one planned for late 2023.

Space opera Lancers follows trainee Imperial lancer pilot, Hwa Young. When she uncovers a terrible secret the Empire has been hiding from its citizens, she’s forced to return to her rebel roots to save her world.

UK/BC English Rights were acquired by David Moore from Anna Carmichael at Abner Stein.

Author Yoon Ha Lee on the acquisition:

“I’m extremely excited to be working with Rebellion again, and happy that the books have found a home here!”

Acquiring Editor David Moore:

“Delighted to welcome Lee home again! Lancers is a thrilling story and one I’m excited to bring to our readers.”

Yoon Ha Lee’s novel Ninefox Gambit came out from Solaris in 2016 and quickly garnered massive critical acclaim and was short-listed for the Arthur C. Clarke, Hugo and Nebula Awards. It won the Best First Novel Award in the Locus Awards and the Reddit Fantasy Award. His story collection Conservation of Shadows was released by Prime Books in 2013. He lives in Louisiana with his family and an extremely lazy cat, and has not yet been eaten by gators.
