Cover for Planet of the Apes: Tales from the Forbidden Zone!

The things you find on Twitter.

The good folks over at 13th Dimension have posted an exclusive first look at the cover and author/story title lineup for Planet of the Apes: Tales from the Forbidden Zone. Coming in January 2017 from Titan Books, this is an anthology of all-new stories based on the five classic Planet of the Apes films and the two 1970s television series. Check out the cover, y’all:

Edited by Rich Handley and Jim Beard, the book will feature stories by this rather impressive list of word pushers:

Will Murray

John Jackson Miller
Greg Cox
Paul Kupperberg
Kevin J. Anderson and Sam Knight
Andrew E.C. Gaska
Jim Beard
Robert Greenberger
Greg Keyes
Ty Templeton
Dayton Ward
Rich Handley
Jonathan Maberry

I don’t want to steal anybody else’s thunder, but my story, “Message In A Bottle,” is set in the continuity of the 1974 live-action Planet of the Apes television series. Virdon, Burke, and Galen on the run from Urko and Zaius, yo!

2017 is shaping up to be banner year for Apes fans, with new books, possibly some new comics, and (of course) a new big-budget blockbuster film, War for the Planet of the Apes. That’s a lot to get your stinking paws on, so you should probably get on with it. For starters, Planet of the Apes: Tales from the Forbidden Zone is already available for pre-order from online booksellers like Amazon, but your local indie bookstore should also be able to help you out. What are you waiting for?

Lay it on me.
