I am simply a much better writer today than the rookie who penned MEG twenty years ago. And so I rewrote the entire story.

Rebel Press announces the release of a limited number of copies of MEG: A Novel of Deep Terror, by Steve Alten. This novel by the New York Times bestselling author will feature a never-before printed prequel, MEG: ORIGINS as well as sixteen original graphic artwork compositions. Volumes are individually numbered and shipped in numerical order with delivery by early February 2015. All books are sold on a first-come, first-served basis with no limit on quantities. Only 5,000 copies will be released in this special anniversary edition. More information about ordering can be found at http://www.rebelpress.com/product/meg-special-anniversary-edition/.
According to Steve Alten, "When I first talked to Ken Dunn, CEO of Rebel Press about combining the never-before-printed MEG prequel, MEG: ORIGINS with the original MEG, I had no idea the endeavor would take me over two months to complete. Once I began the edit, I realized two things – that adding the prequel changed the original, and that, in terms of writing, the original needed a serious polish. I am simply a much better writer today than the rookie who penned MEG twenty years ago. And so I rewrote the entire story. I’m using a percentage of my proceeds to fund research into finding a cure for Parkinsons, which I was diagnosed with 8 years ago. I do feel the value of the Special Edition will go up, especially with a MEG movie announcement forthcoming."
Rebel Press will also be releasing Alten's new work, VOSTOK, the sequel to The Loch that includes crossover from the MEG series as well. VOSTOK will launch on February 17, 2015. For more information, see http://www.rebelpress.com/ and http://www.stevealten.com/product/vostok/ .
