The series will include four stand-alone novels that will expand on the universe seen in 2009′s “Avatar.” No titles, plot lines or expected release dates when been announced yet.
“Steven Gould is one of the shining lights in contemporary science fiction,” said Cameron. ”I’ve long admired the worlds and characters he’s created in his books and stories. We’re very fortunate to have Steven bring his formidable talents to the ‘Avatar’ universe. He is already working closely with me and the screenwriters to flesh out the expanding world of ‘Avatar.’”
Gould is best known for writing “Jumper,” a science fiction novel about a man who can teleport through space. The book was turned into a movie of the same name in 2008, starring Hayden Christiansen and Rachel Bilson.
Meanwhile, Cameron is busy working on the first “Avatar” sequel, which is expected to hit theaters in December 2016.
