Dark Horse Comics’ prose imprint DH Press is pleased to announce the first in a series of novels from the creative minds behind the animated television series Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.

The Stand Alone Complex T.V. series and novels are based on the mythos of Shirow Masamune manga classics Ghost in the Shell and Ghost in the Shell 2 Man-Machine Interface.

Since being formed as a shadow peacekeeping organization within the government, Section 9 has faced almost countless adversaries both in the real world and in cyberspace, but none like “The Awakened,” a group of terrorists who seem to have the ability to take over the minds and bodies of almost anyone and use them to commit crimes against the state, leaving their pawns unaware of who was controlling them. When Major Motoko Kusanagi is able to capture one of the boys used as a pawn she hacks into his cyberbrain to find out who the ringleader is, but what she discovers will take her and the operatives of Section 9 on a journey deep into the heart of cyberspace, and the answers she finds will shake Section 9 to its core.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex—The Lost Memory is written by Junichi Fujisaku. It arrives on sale April 12 with a retail price of $8.95.

ISBN: 1-59582-072-8
