Fringe will continue in a series of prequel novels.
Written by Christa Faust, the prequels each center around one of our three main heroes — Olivia, Walter and Peter. The first prequel, called The Zodiac Paradox, focuses on Walter’s early days with William Bell and Nina Sharp in 1974. The second, The Burning Man, revolves around Olivia as a teenager in 1995. The third currently untitled book will follow Peter during his shady pre-Fringe Division dealings in 2008.
The first two books are available now on Amazon pre-order with the first book having a May 7 release and the second arriving July 16, 2013. Check out the temporary cover art and official prequel descriptions below:
Fringe: The Zodiac Paradox [PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE]
Critically acclaimed Fringe explores new cases with endless impossibilities. Set in Boston, the FBI’s Fringe Division started when Special Agent Olivia Dunham enlisted institutionalized “fringe” scientist Walter Bishop and his globe-trotting, jack-of-all-trades son, Peter, to help in investigations that defy all human logic – and the laws of nature. The first in an all-new series of tie-in novels!
Fringe – The Burning Man [PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE]
The critically acclaimed Fringe television series explores the dramatic and grotesque as impossible crimes are investigated by the government’s shadowy Fringe Division, established when Special Agent Olivia Dunham enlisted institutionalized “fringe” scientist Walter Bishop and his globe-trotting son, Peter, to help in investigations that defy all human logic – and the laws of nature.
Author Christa Faust (Choke Hold, Supernatural) is working hand-in-hand with the television writers to create new adventures uncovering the secrets of the series. The first novel revealed how Walter Bishop and William Bell discovered the drug Cortexiphan–and the alternate universe! Book two will explore how Olivia Dunham first was subjected to Cortexiphan experiments, with catastrophic results.
Faust has been given unprecedented access to stories that have not been told on-screen, but weave directly into the series canon, much as Joss Whedon’s Buffy graphic novels continue that series’ official storyline.
