We’re happy to report that Solaris has acquired World English rights for E.J. Swift‘s new novel, PARIS ADRIFT!
Swift, whose short fiction has appeared in Solaris anthologies, including The Djinn Falls in Love & Other Stories and the forthcoming Infinity Wars, fell in love with Paris while spending time travelling and working there. PARIS ADRIFT paints a vivid picture of the city, and places a captivating science fiction story at its heart.

‘E.J. Swift’s extraordinarily rich time travel novel is a real treat of a read,’ said Solaris Editor-in-Chief Jonathan Oliver. ‘Paris is evoked in all it grubby yet shiny glory, and the characters will make you fall in love with this city, its past and its misfits. An extraordinary accomplishment, bringing to mind the work of authors such as Claire North and Audrey Niffenegger.’
E.J. Swift said this about the deal: ‘I’m delighted that Solaris will be publishing PARIS ADRIFT next year. They are a fantastic team and I’m very much looking forward to working with them over the coming months. The city of the title is close to my heart, and I can’t wait for readers to join Hallie – and her bartending friends – as she is unwittingly thrust into a journey that will take her through the city’s turbulent past and possible futures, forcing her to come to terms with love, loss and her own precarious sense of self.’
Swift is the author of the critically-acclaimed Osiris Project trilogy: OSIRIS, CATAVEIRO and TAMARUQ. The trilogy is published in the UK by Del Rey, and is available in the US via the JABberwocky eBook Program.
