Comic Writer Charles Soule Debuts His First Novel, THE ORACLE YEAR (Exclusive)

If you’ve been reading superhero comics the last few years, then chances are good that you’ve read a few titles by Charles Soule. As you may have heard, Soule is a practicing attorney and a ridiculously prolific writer. In fact, he probably finished a new comic book script in the time that it took to finish this sentence. He’s currently writing Daredevil and Darth Vader for Marvel, and he also killed off Logan in Death of Wolverine. And next year, Soule will give us his first ever novel: The Oracle Year.

Harper Perennial is set to publish Soule’s The Oracle Year on April 3, 2018 as a hardcover, an e-book, and through digital audio. Today, we are exclusively revealing the eye-catching cover image for The Oracle Year. Check it out!

The Oracle Year

The Oracle Year also has a pretty exciting premise, as described below:

Knowledge is power. So when an unassuming Manhattan bassist named Will Dando awakens from a dream one morning with 108 predictions about the future in his head, he rapidly finds himself the most powerful man in the world. Protecting his anonymity by calling himself the Oracle, he sets up a heavily guarded Web site with the help of his friend Hamza to selectively announce his revelations. In no time, global corporations are offering him millions for exclusive access, eager to profit from his prophecies.

He’s also making a lot of high-powered enemies, from the President of the United States and a nationally prominent televangelist to a warlord with a nuclear missile and an assassin grandmother. Legions of cyber spies are unleashed to hack the Site—as it’s come to be called—and the best manhunters money can buy are deployed not only to unmask the Oracle but to take him out of the game entirely. With only a handful of people he can trust—including a beautiful journalist—it’s all Will can do to simply survive, elude exposure, and protect those he loves long enough to use his knowledge to save the world.

Delivering fast-paced adventure on a global scale as well as sharp-witted satire on our concepts of power and faith, Marvel writer Charles Soule’s audacious debut novel takes readers on a rollicking ride where it’s impossible to predict what will happen next.

You can expect to hear more about The Oracle Year at Comic-Con International later this week. And it’s definitely a book that will be on our reading list next April!
