Rush’s ‘Clockwork Angels’ Gets Novel Spinoff for ECW Press

ECW Press
Rush definitely delved a little bit into concept album territory with their latest release, ‘Clockwork Angels,’ and for those who want to go a little further into the story, you should check out ‘Clockwork Angels: The Novel,’ which will be released next month by ECW Press.

The book is a literary collaboration between Rush drummer Neil Peart, who initially came up with the concept and lyrics for the disc, and best-selling sci-fi author Kevin J. Anderson.

The book will officially be launched Aug. 23 at the Richmond and John Chapters on 142 John Street in Toronto. Anderson stated via his blog that he would be in Toronto as a guest at the Fan Expo, but this book launch ceremony would be open to the general public and would mark the first time the book had been on sale. The co-author will also speak, answer questions and autograph books. The U.S. book launch will take place at DragonCon in Atlanta on Aug. 31.

ECW Press recently unveiled two special editions of the ‘Clockwork Angels’ novel, and each of the numbered items are available for pre-order at both ECW Press and through Rush’s Backstage merchandise arm. With a limited run of 300 copies of both the Silver and Gold editions, this should be a must-get for Rush fans.

The Silver Edition comes with a slipcase autographed by both Peart and Anderson and retails for $74.95, while the Gold Edition is also autographed by Peart and Anderson, but also includes a lithograph image from the book signed by artist Hugh Syme and a unique autographed page of the original ‘Clockwork Angels’ manuscript. The Gold Edition retails for $299.95.
