20th Anniversery Magician - You Can Make it Happen!

As you might know, Ray'sU. S. publisher has not committed to releasing a 20th Anniversery Edition of Magician (his UK publisher has). If you want to help influence them to make the right decision, follow Ray's directions:

I can not badger. We can request it, but it's up to the reprint committee at Bantam Doubleday Dell to make the call. You can badger them. POLITELY.

Send a note to Pat LoBrutto, Editor.

Bantam Doubleday Dell
1540 Broadway
New York ,NY10036-4039

Again, POLITELY.

Sort of a 'Dear Sir, as the publisher of REF's Magician, I'm sure you realize we are approaching the 20th Anniversary . . . Etc. I would really love to have a new hardcover. . . Etc.'

Use please and thank you, like you did when you were a kid trying to wheedle things out of your parents.

E-mail doesn't count. Right now it doesn't have the clout snail mail does.

Moreover, requests for folks in other markets don't count, really.

Please follow what Ray says and be polite and mature. Check for spelling and grammar. Let's hope we can make a difference.

Pug's Parents

Ray has repeatedly said that Pug's parents were normal, but people ask again and again. Here's his latest statement on the matter:

No. I've told people that they were a serving woman and a soldier, but I just said that to get across the fact they were ordinary. I never knew who Pug's parents were, never cared, and don't know. But they are ordinary.

Collaborations

Ray posted two notes today about collaborations, relating to the Tales of the Riftwar series. The first deals with the financial aspects:

All collaborations are negotiated. The worse of the 'big name/little name' books that get inflicted on the public often have the big name getting most of the money while the little name does most of the work.

All my collaborations are true collaborations and we split the money 50/50.

The second lists the authors signed to co-write Tales novels (incase you missed them previously):

So far there are three Tales under contract. The three writers I'm working with are Joel Rosenberg, William R. Forschten, and S. M. Stirling.

Tales of the Riftwar News

Ray posted this note about collaborating with Janny:

OK, one more time. I have never said I won't collaborate with Janny again. I talk to her all the time and we discuss lots of things, including maybe working together again.What i've said (over and over) is we'll never do another Kelewan novel together.

Janny might write a Tales of the Riftwar with me sometime down the road.

Also, he posted this note, which I think includes the title of the first Tales novel:

The next two are Tear of the Gods and then Honoured Enemy (the one I'm doing with Bill Forstchen), and no the collaborations haven't been cancelled.

I'm not positive about that though... I'll post a definitive answer when Ray weighs in on it.

Pug's Future

Ray posted these two snippets about Pug's future:

I never said that Pug would become a black magician. I said he would be as powerful as Macros the Black by then.

...

Pug can't time travel . . . Yet.

Book for Sale

Kyle 'The Professor' Kneisl posted this not to the list:

Hey, You guys are going to let the beautiful copy of aDaS HB original BCE with sweet dust jacket I am selling on eBay escape for $8????? Less than a day left on the auction.

It's funny you know...I am selling a bunch of things. The books I didn't expect to do well are doing very well, and the Feist book, which I thought would be bid right up, is sort of languishing at $8.

I ship international. Somebody wants it I'm sure. I'd much rather the winning bidder was one of us than some random eBay person. I also have a complete set of BCE hardcovers in great shape of the Empire trilogy--which I would consider selling (since I actually have TWO sets. Heh). If somebody wants to entice me to put those on eBay, write me an email with a subject line like this: 'READ THIS KYLE'

New Fantasy Site

Darragh Murray posted this note about his new website, currently in development:

Hello, I have finally put up the very-very-very-beta version of my fantasy site

it has a few authors on it, and my views on em, plus some links, but the main attraction to most of you Feistians will be the incomplete Feist glossary of characters/places/etc please note that this glossary is very timeconsuming and I have only glossified all of SoaDQ, RoaMP, and a bit of RAGe on the PAGE (even though on paper I have done more than half the REF book collection) - NOTE MAJOR CHARACTERS HAVEN'T BEEN ADDED YET as they require extra info

Congratulations!

I want to send out my congratulations and best wishes to long-time list member Richard Williamson and his wife, who gave birth to boy on Friday. May he never have his father's looks (but perhaps his wit) :)
