Sci-fi author tackling Assassin's Creed books


Pro-G reports that a trilogy of Assassin's Creed books are to be written by best selling science fiction author, Steven Barnes. The first book is a prequel to the game and is set to release in October. The books will center on the backstory of the game's main character, Altair. Having written for television series such as The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits, Barnes seems like a natural choice (360 Fanboy readers will remember the recently leaked info that Assassin's Creed actually has a science fiction plot). We're curious to see how many of the game's sci-fi elements make it into the books.

So, will you be picking up the books, or will you be saving your scratch for the game?
