NEW YORK —

A Pulitzer Prize-winning author and investigative journalist is working on a book about the "surveillance-industrial state" that emerged after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Penguin Press announced Thursday that it had acquired a book by Barton Gellman, a contributing editor at large for Time magazine and a Washington Post reporter. The book, currently untitled, doesn't have a release date.

The announcement follows last week's reports that the government was compiling a vast database of phone and Internet records. Gellman co-wrote a story for the Post that revealed a surveillance program code-named PRISM.

Gellman won a Pulitzer and a George Polk Award in 2008 for a series of articles he wrote for the Post about then-Vice President Dick Cheney. The articles became the basis for a best-selling book, "Angler."
