Chuck Palahniuk: New Books Announced Through 2015

Chuck Palahniuk's new books have been announced - and he says he's already finished all three. The cult author of Fight Club will have a book a year coming out until 2015. The first, according to, is a sequel to the 2012 novel, Damned, coming out in October.

Called Doomed, here's what he told his official website:

The next novel will follow Madison back to earth as a ghost, doomed to haunting her parents for a year. In flashback we see her earlier childhood, including the death of the kitten whose dead body subsequently clogged the plumbing of the Beverly-Wilshire Hotel. That death is not Madison's doing, but another death is. Whether it's murder or self-defense, as a ten-year-old Madison kills someone horrifically, and that's the most-likely reason why she was damned in the first place. We also begin to recognize a centuries-long conspiracy engineered to train and test Maddy for her role as the savior of all spiritual beings.

Nope, nothing subtle, here.

Oh, I forgot to mention it but the world ends in this next book.

In October 2014, "comic/erotic thriller" Beautiful You will be published, apparently a satire of Fifty Shades of Grey-style erotica.

Finally, in 2015, a collection of his short stories titled Make Something Up will appear. Palahniuk, who turns 51 next week, wrote about where he likes to read in his inimitable style for us last summer.
