Terry Brooks will publish in October a new book, Street Freaks, not related to Shannara or Landover.

Street Freaks is that new book, a wholly different type of story from what has come before. Here are more details about it:
It begins with a dire call-right before his father disappears and his skyscraper home's doors explode inward. It is the kind of thrilling futuristic story only Terry Brooks can tell.
"Go into the Red Zone. Go to Street Freaks." his father directs Ashton Collins before the vid feed goes suddenly silent. The Red Zone is the dangerous heart of mega-city Los Angeles; it is a world Ash is forbidden from and one he knows little about. But if he can find Street Freaks, the strangest of aid awaits—human and barely human alike. As Ash is hunted, he must unravel the mystery left behind by his father and discover his role in this new world.

Barely human alike ? It doesn't look like a new theme. Nevertheless, I will give him a chance to prove me this new book is not something similar with James Dasher's one.
