Following the end of Gunnm in May 1995, Yukito Kishiro was asked to adapt it into novel form. He asked Yasuhisa Kawamura, his former assistant, to write the story while he handled the illustrations. The novel was released from March through August 1996 in Shueisha's Jump Novel magazine before being published in paperback form by JUMP j-BOOKS in April 1997.
Kishiro created four CG illustrations for the novel, including the cover. Three were completed in February 1996 and the fourth in July 1996. They can be seen on the gallery section of his website. He also did 11 black and white illustrations.
