HarperVoyager Ebooks Announced
Today we recieved the following announcement from HarperVoyager:
HarperVoyager Delighted To Announce Publication of Raymond E. Feist’s Novels as Ebooks for First Time
London, 4th September 2012:
HarperVoyager are delighted to announce that for the first time the novels of international bestselling author Raymond E. Feist will be published as ebook editions.
MAGICIAN, SILVERTHORN and A DARKNESS AT SETHANON launch the much-anticipated programme when they are published digitally on the 10th September. The rest of Feist’s current and backlist titles will be available later that week, from Thursday 13th September.
Rights were bought from Arabella Stein at Abner Stein by Jane Johnson, Publishing Director at Voyager.
Raymond Feist is revered as one of the world’s most popular fantasy writers. His acclaimed first novel MAGICIAN has sold over one million copies alone in its UK edition, whilst the total number of sales for Feist’s work is over 15 million copies. All of his books have been Sunday Times bestsellers.
Jane Johnson said: ‘Ray is one of the true greats, beloved by fantasy readers all over the world, and the absence of the Riftwar Cycle from the digital pantheon has been a glaring omission which we're so happy to be able to address. I know that a host of fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of these ebooks: it will be a brilliant way for readers to catch up with the entire story of Pug and the fight to preserve Midkemia before the release of MAGICIAN'S END - the very last volume in the series - is published next spring, bringing to a conclusion the whole magnificent, magical adventure that began way back in 1982 and helped to shape the genre we know and love today.'
Voyager is also rejuvenating Feist’s physical backlist this autumn, which will be available in B format for the first time along with a stunning new livery. The new look will debut with MAGICIAN on 13th September (please see attached for a sneak preview) and will then be applied to the rest of the Riftwar Cycle series from January 2013 onwards.

Beyond the Riftwar Cycle

Date: 15 July
The next project will be a new universe, however, and the working title is King of Ashes. Sort of like Game of Thrones with show tunes.
Note: This is the possible series title.

Older covers - Take 2, by Geoff Taylor
Many will have noticed the various covers on the books, Geoff Taylor, is one of the artists that created many of the earlier colourfull covers for the books of the UK and Australia. Many of the art has also been used in other countries, and on books of other authors.
Geoff was recently requested to create two paintings as private commisions to represent his own interpretation of scenes from the books. The first is entitled "On the Lookout for the Tsurani" a scene from Magician, whilst the second is "Gorath of the Ardanien" a scene from Krondor the Betrayal. Selecting an image will open the original page at geofftaylor-artist.com where you can see a larger picture and read more.
