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.

From September fans will be able to purchase the entirety of Feist’s Riftwar Cycle in ebook form.

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

There has been speculation as to what and where Ray will write after the Riftwar Cycle concludes. Yesterday Ray revealed a small clue to the Feistfans-l Mailing list. As more is revealed we will let you know, so please don't email us asking for more.

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.

Best, R.E.F.

 

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.

UK A Crown Imperilled Error - Important

The following text is a reproducion of a article that can be found at Harper Voyager Books. It is applicable to the First Printing Hardback edition, and is reproduced by permission from Jane Johnson, Publishing Director.

A Crown Imperilled by Raymond E. Feist

February 13, 2012

Dear Fans,
 
Sometimes things go wrong in the complex process of publishing a book, but we do try to keep it to a minimum! This time a glitch has slipped through our safety net, and unfortunately it’s in the otherwise wonderful A Crown Imperilled. We at Voyager are not only the publishers of Ray’s work, we are also his fans, so this pains us deeply.
 
We would like to apologise wholeheartedly for any inconvenience the error may have caused you. We are aware of the fault, and are correcting it in the reprint.  If you have bought a copy of the first run and would like a replacement please send your old copy and postal address to:
 
A Crown Imperilled Replacement
 
HarperCollins
77-85 Fulham Palace Road
Hammersmith
W6 8JB

A note from Raymond E. Feist and Jane Johnson
 
Dear Reader,
 
Putting a book together is a collaborative undertaking, but ultimately the responsibility for errors falls to the author. Even if someone introduces an error in production, the author is given the opportunity to read the final manuscript and should spot it. A Crown Imperilled has such an error, one potentially annoying to the reader. In the last stage of production, I inadvertently inserted a much early draft version of part of one chapter in lieu of the final draft, which resulted in a continuity gaff. For this I deeply apologize, and will do my very best to not repeat such a mistake. It’s the first real gaff in thirty years, and doubly galling because I know how it was supposed to read. Thank you for years of support.
 
Raymond E. Feist
 
=====
 
‘It’s not fair that Ray should shoulder all the blame. I was the editor in charge of getting a perfect book to press, and in the midst of a white-hot edit I missed the fact that suddenly Pug was in two places at once! Editors are supposed to be infallible (it’s our job), but I fear I was swept away by the story, reading like a reader and not like an editor. After 27 years you’d think I’d have got that one down. And then the proofreader, whose job it is to sweep up after both of us, missed it as well. I am so sorry: we pride ourselves on the quality – both in terms of the writer’s imagination and of our production – of Voyager novels, and I sincerely hope the glitch will not spoil this wonderful novel for you.’
 
Jane Johnson, Publishing Director
