Keanu Reeves and acclaimed author China Miéville have teamed up to write a new novel, The Book Of Elsewhere, about an immortal warrior on an epic quest, set to be released by Del Rey this summer.

Check out Reeves announcing the book on Good Morning America here…

The Book Of Elsewhere is the first novel by Keanu Reeves and is set in the world of the BRZRKR comic series Reeves created with writer Matt Kindt and artist Ron Garney, published by BOOM! Studios. It follows an immortal warrior on a millennia-long quest to discover the key to his immortality—and perhaps, a way to free himself from it.

“It was extraordinary to have the opportunity to collaborate on The Book Of Elsewhere with one of my favorite authors, China Miéville,’ said Keanu Reeves. “China did exactly what I was hoping for—he came in with a clear architecture for the story and how he wanted to play with the world of BRZRKR, a world that I love so much. I was thrilled with his vision and feel honored to be a part of this collaborative process.”

The Book Of Elsewhere will be published Summer 2024

The BRZRKR comic was the #1 bestselling debut of a new comic property in over 25 years, and the #1 bestselling comic of the decade. The immortal saga of BRZRKR will soon expand further with a live-action Netflix film starring Keanu Reeves, and an anime spinoff series, also in development at Netflix.

“Sometimes the greatest games are those you play with other people’s toys,” added China Miéville. “It was an honour, a shock and a delight when Keanu invited me to play. But I could never have predicted how generous he’d be with toys he’s spent so long creating, how glad to experiment together, how open to true collaboration. I hope readers get to experience even a fraction of the pleasure reading The Book Of Elsewhere that I experienced in the writing – in the serious business of play.”

The Book of Elsewhere by Keanu Reeves and China Miéville will publish in hardback on 23rd July 2024. Available here.
