A Trick of Light, co-written by Lee and Kat Rosenfield, will be published on 17 September, 2019.
The novel, whose full title reads Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light, is the first work to be released in connection with Lee’s new Alliances universe.
“A Trick of Light is a superhero origin story about the unlikely friendship between Cameron, a gifted young man struggling with newfound fame after a freak accident gives him the ability to manipulate technology with his mind, and Nia, a hacker and coding genius with a mysterious past,” reads the publisher’s description.
“The two must combine their powers to fight the dangerous physical and online forces threatening to wipe out the human race.”
“Our yarn is filled with tantalizing technologies that will make you hunger for tomorrow, while our characters strive to find the answers today,” Lee wrote in the book’s introduction.
“They’ll ask the questions we all have about love, friendship, acceptance, and the search for a higher purpose.”
Lee, who co-created many Marvel superheroes such as Spider-Man, Iron Man and Thor, died in November 2018 aged 95.
“When Stan Lee passed away last fall, the world lost a genius whose fountain of creativity kept flowing to the very end,” Bruce Nichols, Senior Vice President and Publisher at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, said.
“We are so grateful that one of his final projects was his first-ever novel for adult readers, and we are proud and excited to be publishing it this fall.”
