J. J. Abrams novel to come out in fall 2012: Start your speculation now!

Clearly using some form of Lost-style (or perhaps Season 4 Felicity-style) time travel, J. J. Abrams has somehow found time between working on Super 8, the Star Trek sequel, the new Mission Impossible, and two awesome-sounding pilots, to write a novel. Okay, maybe not write, per se. Abrams is billed as the “creator” of the new book, which was just picked up today by Mulholland Books and which will be actually written by author Doug Dorst. Abrams’ contributions will probably not be unlike Guillermo Del Toro’s work on The Strain trilogy.

The novel at this point has no official title and so can be referred to, like so many other things, as Untitled J. J. Abrams Project, but it is set to release in fall 2012. According to Little, Brown’s Michael Pietsch, “Doug and J. J.’s story will explode the bonds of the novel in ways no book has ever done.” There are no plot details beyond this assertion that it will turn our minds inside out and change the future of the written word forever, but I think we’re pretty much guaranteed to see at least a few mysterious viral videos and/or hidden messages over the next year-and-a-half, coupled with wild speculation from fans. (It’s a lion!) In fact, there might even be an exclusive secret code hidden in this very blog post!*

*Spoiler alert: There’s not.

    He gives me the creeps! Never liked him, don’t know why!

  • Dahlia

    Unlike James Patterson, at least, he’s not taking credit for writing it.

    I’m dubious. The Strain was one of the most horribly written books I’ve encountered in recent memory. It was obvious Guillermo del Toro’s “co-writing” consisted of a little creative input, nothing more.

    “…explode the bonds of the novel in ways no book has ever done.” “…it will turn our minds inside out and change the future of the written word forever…”

    Please. Now I’m just more willing to ignore it. I’d be more interested if they just quietly published it and the news came out later.

    Since it’s from JJ Abrams I’m sure the plot with be structured like “Lost” — 300 pages of mystery and mysticism followed by a final chapter that fails to address the mysteries raised in the book and leaves readers evenly split between disappointment and rage.

    • bria

      JJ didn’t write the ending of Lost and boy the folks who didn’t like the ending sure are a bitter bunch.. it’s time pull up your big boy/girl pants and let go.
