At age 96, Herman Wouk is ready for a fresh start.

The author of "The Caine Mutiny," "The Winds of War" and other classics has a new novel and has switched publishers after decades with Little, Brown and Co.

Wouk's "The Lawgiver" is coming out this fall from Simon & Schuster. It's the story of a planned movie about Moses, complete with references to Skype and Twitter.

In a statement issued Monday by the publisher, Wouk noted that his first novel, "Aurora Dawn," was also released by Simon & Schuster. That book came out in 1947.
