New Series Of Dead Space Novels On The Way

EA has announced plans to expand the Dead Space universe through a new novel in the form of a prequel. Dead Space: Martyr, by award-winning Last Days author Brian Evenson. Dead Space 2 executive producer Steve Papoutsis hopes this will be "the first of many books to let fans dive deeply into Dead Space’s secrets and immersive lore."

The novel stars geophysicist Michael Altman, father of the series’ Unitology religion, and covers his discovery of and experience with the Black Marker. Eric Raab, editor at the book's publisher, Tor Books commented:
“One of the most compelling storytelling aspects of Dead Space has been the Church of Unitology: its origins, power, and role in Dead Space. Writer B.K. Evenson gets into the terrifying aspects of mob mentality like no other writer today. This isn’t only a great story within the Dead Space universe; it’s a great novel on its own.”
The paperback will be available in July for $14.99.
