Permuted Press Acquires THE SPAWN from WGA Award Winning Screenwriter, Ken Nolan


Permuted Press announces their acquisition of The Spawn, the first novel from Writers Guild of America Award winning screenwriter, Ken Nolan.

What would you do to get what nature had denied you? How far would you go? What if it took more than money? The cost for your deepest wish might be your soul…

The Perfect couple. The Perfect life. They’ve just moved in to an immaculate home in the Boston’s historic Beacon Hill. Only one thing is missing from Charles and Janet Malcom’s life: a baby. Mother Nature has denied Janet her deepest wish. But the mysterious and exciting neighbors next door promise to help her. All it will take is an agreement, and something in return. Charles Malcom descends into paranoia and terror as he wonders if their new child was indeed created the old fashioned way, or by some unnatural, dark pathway.

Permuted Press has established itself for over a decade as a leading independent publisher of zombie, post-apocalyptic, and survival horror fiction titles. Since Permuted Press’s acquisition by a privately owned investment firm in the summer of 2013, their releases have increased in frequency and scope. Permuted Press now publishes a wide variety of genres including Science Fiction, paranormal, fantasy, macabre and traditional horror.

Permuted Press President Michael L. Wilson stated, “It’s notable for any publisher to release a book from a Hollywood screenwriter like Ken Nolan, but for us it’s particularly exciting. Our partnership with Ken on The Spawn is further evidence of Permuted Press’s expansion into more traditional horror territory, and we’re really excited to be working with a writer of Ken’s stature.”

Ken Nolan has been a working screenwriter in Hollywood since his first script sale to Warner Brothers Studios in 1994. Ken is the screenwriter of the blockbuster war film Black Hawk Down, based on the book by Mark Bowden, and he received a Writers Guild Award for the TNT miniseries The Company, based on the bestselling spy novel by Robert Littell. The Spawn is Ken Nolan’s first novel. He continues to work in Hollywood as an in-demand writer of film and television. He grew up shuttling between divorced parents in Portland, Oregon and Buffalo, New York. He now lives in Los Angeles with his wife, daughter, and two dogs.

The Spawn was acquired from Ed Victor at Ed Victor Ltd. and will be available throughout North America in February, 2015.
