Future plans

In response to questions on what the future holds 

From: Raymond Feist
Date: 01 September 2007

At this point I have plans to finish the Riftwar Cycle, which has five books to go, and then begin a new series in a new universe.  So after I finish the Midkemian stuff, it'll be a while before I get back to it, I think, as I'll be focusing on a new franchise.

Best, R.E.F.

Midkemia Press d20 RPG update

From the Midkemia Press website August 2007

The latest negotiations for a d20 version of Midkemia have followed the pattern of the others and fallen apart. At this time there is no plan to do a d20 version but this could change at any time depending on interest from 3rd parties to license the product line or enough interest internally to do the work. More here as it is developed.

MARVEL & DABEL BROS. SPLIT UP

Official Press Release

New York, NY (August 13, 2007). Marvel Entertainment, Inc. and Dabel Brothers Productions, LLC announced today that they are mutually ending their publishing relationship. In 2006, Marvel and Dabel Brothers signed an agreement for Marvel to market, print and distribute several limited and ongoing series, in addition to some other dynamic new properties. Founded in 2001, the Dabel Brothers have specialized in creating comic books and graphic novels based on the works of best-selling authors' series such as Laurell K Hamilton's Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter; George R. R. Martin's Hedge Knight; and Orson Scott Card's Tales Of Alvin Maker and others.

Marvel Entertainment, Inc. President and Publisher Dan Buckley explained, "We have great respect for the Dabel Brothers' business and the relationships they have generated. Our partnership has been an exciting experience for both companies. We wish the Dabels well in their future publishing endeavors and hope to work with them again, should the opportunity present itself."

"Working with Marvel was a dream come true for all of us, and we enjoyed the opportunity to learn from the comic book industry's market leader," said Ernst Dabel, President of Dabel Brothers Productions. "We're looking forward to applying those lessons to our business as we resume our status as a self-publisher, and we plan to continue producing top-quality adaptations of best-selling science fiction, fantasy, horror and thriller novels by popular authors.

Going forward, Marvel will continue to publish Anita Blake Vampire Hunter by Laurell K. Hamilton; the Hedge Knight series by George RR Martin; Tales of Alvin Maker and Wyrms by Orson Scott Card; Magician Apprentice by Raymond Feist; Lords of Avalon by Kinley MacGregor; and Highwayman by R.A. Salvatore. Dabel Brothers Productions will begin work on its next wave of books, slated for release in early 2008.

Midkemia Online - Update

Today we received an email from Leigh Stillard, Producer of "Midkemia Online" for 'Iron Realms Entertainment'. 

Here for your information is an extract from that email:-

In terms of status here is a quick update on what we have done so far. We have completed building all the cities and kingdoms of the realm,(those that will be available at release - Admin), and made them functional for use by players once the game is released. We have crafting & gathering systems, our system for religion and roleplay events, and most of the area west of Krondor and north of the Bitter Sea built. Combat has been the main focus of the last 9 months, which is nearing a state where we are ready to go to alpha testing. We have a great deal more than the above in, but these are the most notable and the ones which required the most work.

Right now we're fleshing out the organizations that players will be a part of, an exciting trade system, continuing to polish and test the combat system, and various other preparations for alpha and beta. I can't give you a release date at this point unfortunately, but I should be able to at some point in the next couple of months.

Leigh Stillard,
Producer of "Midkemia Online"
for 'Iron Realms Entertainment'

Rounding up the Krondor books

Ray recently posted to the newsgroup in response to a question on the remaining Krondor Books

From: Raymond Feist
Date: 24 July 2007

There may be a non-traditional project that will cover that last set of story issues down the road, but I can say no more on that topic right now.

Best, R.E.F.

From: Raymond Feist
Date: 26 July 2007

It's not a graphic novel. By non-traditional I mean "not a novel," and only that.

Midkemia Games

Ray posted to alt.books.raymond-feist

From: Raymond Feist
Date: 20 June 2007

Never get your hopes up on 4 year old press releases.

Iron Realm is producing a MUD, or so they say, and I have no idea when it's going to go public. I'm not deep into the game part of that deal. They optioned a graphic game right, but those rights reverted very quickly as they couldn't get the money people on line.

Wrath of a Mad God Delay

Ray posted the following to alt.books.raymond-feist

From: Raymond Feist
Date: 20 June 2007

Almost certainly no. I suspect this is the first officially "blown" deadline I've had in 28 years. So expect it next April, about the same time as the US edition.

I've had vision issues since March, a function of age, and while things are beginning to improve (not back to "before" yet, but getting there), I can't hit the computer for those long rewrite sessions like I used to. I had a good day today, doing 34 pages of original and rewrite, but it's the first day over 20 pages since March. I'll turn it in about a week from now, but I fear we're too late to make production for the fall.

Best, R.E.F.
