BREAKING NEWS: Warren Fahy Announces Stealth Sequel!

So, some readers may recall that I went a little wild over a debut thriller a couple of years ago called Fragment.  I've maintained a friendly correspondence with author Warren Fahy ever since, and I knew that he'd been working on a sequel, as well as a screenplay for the film adaptation of Fragment.  And I kept waiting and waiting to hear something about a publication date.  And there was nothing--until Wednesday.  Out of the blue, the following press release lands in my inbox:


February 23th, 2011

PANDEMONIUM, the long-awaited sequel to Warren Fahy’s debut novel, FRAGMENT, is now available exclusively on Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble eBook. Fahy’s first novel took the book world by storm, published in 2009 in 20 countries and 18 languages. Now, his new thriller PANDEMONIUM has at last been unleashed.

Why only on eBook from Amazon and Barnes & Noble?

“After a long development process working with Random House, we came to an insuperable creative difference in how to approach a sequel to FRAGMENT,” says author Fahy. “Fortunately, in this digital day and age, as an author I had the option to preserve my vision for the story and make the book available to fans. I’m very proud to offer PANDEMONIUM just as I intended it, as a continuation of the original story that stands on its own.”

PANDEMONIUM picks up where FRAGMENT left off, though readers encountering this novel first will be able to enjoy Fahy’s new thriller by itself. In the aftermath of one of the most significant and deadly discoveries in natural history, biologists Nell and Geoffrey Binswanger find themselves confronted with an adventure even more astonishing.

As the world decides the fate of the only living species rescued from a geologically unstable island in the South Pacific, the newlywed scientists are invited by a shadowy figure, Russian oligarch Maxim Dragolovich, to study a new ecosystem in a secret facility deep beneath the Ural Mountains. What occurs in the depths of the Earth will confirm their worst nightmares as they battle to stay alive, the stakes no less than the survival of every species on the planet.

The latest thriller by the acclaimed author of FRAGMENT (soon to be a major motion picture) takes readers on an adrenaline-fueled thrill-ride, once again, into the frontiers of life on Earth, and beyond.

Now, I can't truthfully claim that the blogosphere is burning up with this news, but certainly there's been plenty of freewheeling speculation between me and my gossipy industry pals.  Warren, come on and do a guest blog about your new book.  Inquiring minds want to know, what's the deal?

Oh, and suffice it to say that I was on purchasing Pandemonium before I'd finished reading the first paragraph of the press release.  My impulse is to read and review it immediately, but I've just begun a time-consuming literary project that'll eat up the next two weeks.  (Details soon, I promise!)  What to do?  What to do?

I'll probably have a review up by Monday.

UPDATE 3/8/2011:  Pandemonium is temporarily unavailable on Amazon and other ebook selling sites.  Reader response was strong enough to interest several publishers in the book, and it is currently unavailable while negotiations are ongoing.  I'll post updates as news is available.  Congrats to the lucky readers who grabbed it quick!


  1. I'll be happy to guest-blog. :)

  6. Just finished Fragment, couldn't put it down, pleeeeeeeeeeease hurry and get Pandemonium printed. I don't own a Kindle and I'm just old fashioned enough to want it on paper, it's just better that way:{

  7. Well then, let us have by purchase, the sequel. We quiver in...anticipation!

  8. Just finished Fragment, wow!!
    I was stunned, overwhelmed by the terror and the details, and I feel so much smarter all of the sudden..
    There must be one heck of a movie in this,
    Absolute top of the art!
    Can't wait for Pandemonium, but......where is it??
    Please, I don't want to rush you Mr. Fahy, but please hurry!!
    I need to know...MORE!!

  9. I hope the film manages to keep the integrity and freshness that Fragment offers. When the get done with the Fragment movie, they should make a movie about Pandemonium!

  10. Loved the first book but refuse to read eBooks. Please update when a paper version is available.

  11. Oh dear. This is really old news. A beautiful new hardback was released within the past month! There's an updated review on the blog, as well as a new interview with Warren. I hope you stuck around long enough to find all that.
