The New York Film Academy is excited to share that the popular series, “Bookburners,” is coming to print through SAGA Press. “Bookburners” is a collaborative novel featuring the talents of Screenwriting Instructor Margaret Dunlap, Max Gladstone, Mur Lafferty, and Brian Francis Slattery. Previously released in 16 online installments by Serial Box,”Bookburners” is a critically acclaimed urban fantasy about a secret team of agents that hunts down dangerous books containing deadly magic.


The savvy pitch is Supernatural meets The Da Vinci Code in a fast-paced, kickass character driven novel chock-full of magic, mystery, and mayhem, written collaboratively by a team of some of the best writers working in fantasy.

The cover was designed by artist Marko Manev and designer Michael McCartney.

“I’m very excited that ‘Bookburners’ is coming to print,” said Dunlap. “We have a great team of writers, and it’s been a wonderful opportunity to take the skills that I learned as a screenwriter and apply them to a new medium.”

The print version of “Bookburners” will be available on January 10, 2017 from SAGA Press!
