About WorldBuilder

WorldBuilder is a collaborative project between the author of a novel, the publisher and fan-creators. We’re also inviting other professionals to join in. We’re trialling the project with one novel, before rolling it out on a wider basis.

Are you a fan writer, or fan artist? Do you like to paddle in other writers’ pools? Do you write prose, poetry, songs, plays or comicbooks? Do you sculpt, paint, draw, whittle or build? Do you create?

Empire State, by Adam ChristopherIf so, we’d like to invite you to create works based on Adam Christopher’s Empire State.

Why would you want to?

  1. Well, first of all, because Adam’s novel is a huge amount of fun, and there are limitless stories that can be told within the world he has created – superhero, PI, prohibition, fringe science, noir, alternate dimension, and many more.
  2. And secondly, because it’s not common for publishers and professional novelists to allow other creators to paddle in their pools – most of them actively prohibit it (the big meanies!), so not only will you be able to create your stories and other art, you’ll be doing so with the active encouragement of the author and publisher.
  3. And thirdly, because if we (that’s Angry Robot, the publisher – nice to meetcha!) really like what you’ve created, we might choose to publish it, and pay you for your work (see the bottom of this page for details).
