It really irks me when they decided to release a book ONLY in E-book format.

Does anyone have a website with the release dates for the next year or two mapped out? O-love (http://www.o-love.net/realms/fr_new.html) seems to have abandoned his/her site :(

I've been finding the listings on Amazon. I start with a search for Forgotten Realms (in the books section) and set it to sort by publication date. Then I check individual authors as some are showing up without the FR tag, but given their titles and that they are being released by WotC it is reasonable to assume they are FR books.

And some more books have popped up on Amazon, Demon Weave, and it looks like things are about to take a turn for the interesting. Here is part of the description:

A "prophet" moves among the drow. A fallen priest, a scoundrel, a seductress, and if history is any guide, an avatar of Lolth herself. There are whispers to the leaders of the great drow Houses, communicating Lolth's desire: The Spider Queen will spin a new Weave and take Mystra's vacant seat as god of magic.

And, for anyone paying attention to such things, this appears to be another ebook.

There is also a new paperback with cover art, The Rose of Sarifal, a novel of the Moonshea Isles.

Also, the pre order (with cover art) for Elminster Enraged is up.

Finally, the previously mentioned Prince of Ravens now has a product description. It is a FR book, and it stars Jack Ravenwild.

So they're not content with Shar. Now they have Lloth to once again usurp Mystra's throne.

I'm curious to see how it will play out. I notice part of Lolth's plan is similar to the plan Mystra has put forth in the current Elminster books.

The Lloth/Mystra story arc seems like it should be a little more important than a ebook only release. I'm also saddened that the next Jack Ravenwild book looks to only be in ebook format.

Wow, all this sounds really promising! Jack Ravenwild is a must for me and the Lolth/Mystra novel sounds also really good. Plus Godborn. Thrilling!

Dang it, now I need an e-reader thingy. The Lolth/Mystra at 5k seems to be a bit short for a full novel.

I hope Candlekeep continues to be the friendly forum of fellow Realms-lovers that it has always been, as we all go through this together. If you don’t want to move to the “new” Realms, that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with either you or the “old” Realms. Goodness knows Candlekeep, and the hearts of its scribes, are both big enough to accommodate both. If we want them to be.

The Gilded Rune by Lisa Smedman is also on Amazon with an April 2012 publication date. Is this a Forgotten Realms novel?

Tarrok of Halruaa, it certainly is a Realms novel. Ed tells me it races along, and highlights an oft-neglected race. "Very much worth buying and reading."

You're very welcome! Ed itches to reveal more (when you see a copy of the novel, it will probably have a "blurb" by him somewhere on its covers), but of course legally cannot.
However: he liked it.

Elminster Enraged now has a description and it comes out Sept 4th!

It doesn't sound that interesting to me. Though it's still too early to make a decision whether to buy it or not...

Anyway, why is there no description yet for Charon's Claw? I'd like to know how involved will Thay and Shade be in that book.

Well, that's probably because of your feelings about Manshoon. If that Amazon description replaced Manshoon with Telamont, you'd probably be a little more interested.

Not only Manshoon. Cormyr, his ash state, and now, Underdark...Sigh. I want something new. Or at least feature Larloch instead of some irksome characters.

And to my query, Charon's Claw is scheduled to be released before Elminster Enraged[/i], yet it still does not have a description while the latter already has.

That's probably because R.A. Salvatore hasn't written (or at least finished) it yet, but Ed has turned EE in and it's been edited into final form.
I never place much faith in the WotC Amazon descriptions, anyway. They're obviously trying not to give too much away. Heck, Larloch could be the main villain in EE, for all we know.
Though I strongly doubt it. I think Ed's still saving him for something big.
As for "something new" - - well, Ed gives us that, book after book, more than any other Realms author. I happen to like Ed's Realms writing style, but I have a gaming friend who does not, and still buys every last Ed book, because "you can't really understand, enjoy the full depth of, and keep up with, the Realms if you don't."
An opinion I agree with fully.
I'll bet you very little of the book will be set in the Underdark. I think Ed is spotlighting Cormyr all the way in this trilogy. (Funny how scribes complain about Cormyr being overused, and never complain about the Underdark being overused...)

I like Ed's older books. The new ones look recycled. How many times must Elminster lose his Art, turn into an old fool, and return to 'normal'? And how many novels must be set in Cormyr before they say its' enough? Sigh. And sigh again.

Done with my short rant.

Now picking up The Masked Witches...and continue where I left off...

I am of a similar mindset. I really enjoyed the first Elminster book but steadily lost interest after that. I want to see a powerful magic user be able to use their magic.

I also seem to prefer Elminster written by others. Troy Dennings Return of the Archwizards series comes to mind.
