In an interview with SFFWorld, Christopher Priest discusses some of the projects he's working on at the moment. He's currently finishing off his next novel, The Adjacent, and has plans for a further novel after that, The Mariners, as well as a stage play. In the meantime, his next novel, The Islanders, will be published in the UK at the end of the month by Gollancz in the UK.
Some interesting stuff in the interview, such as how his lengthy break from writing after The Separation has resulted in a sudden explosion of new ideas and projects. Also interesting is that Priest seems to have cooled somewhat on Chris Nolan's adaptation of The Prestige and his subsequent projects, with some interesting discussion of why that may be so.
The Islanders remains my most eagerly-awaited book of 2011, and the news we won't have to wait ten years for his next novel is very welcome indeed.
