I can't remember the last time I bought an 'in the flesh' book; my kindle collection is getting pretty extensive now. The convenience, and the easy way to scratch my impulse-buy, instant-gratification itch, make e-books vastly preferable for me.

Erin -

From the author's point of view, do you have any preference for book mediums/formats?

Not at all: Amazon usually loads the Kindle version immediately, and the paper versions sometimes take a while to show up. :)

BenN: Whatever version gets you to buy it!

But all other things being equal, the hardcover has the best return for me.

Nothing beats a beautiful Hardcover and Farideh makes for fantastic cover art.

The little blurb written for Spellstorm makes it seem like it is going to be the game Clue, except Archmage Dungeon and Dragons style lol. It was Szass in the library with an energy drain lol....

Wizards is it true that stopped the production of Novels? If yes, Are they going to collaborate with another company to publish novels, or not?

Im sorry to go OT for a second. Since FR novels are no longer a thing (no puplications in DMG? I would pay for this, even from hobby writers) I was looking for other stuff to follow. There I stayed with WOTC and got a closer look at the Magic the gathering novels. Well it seems, that there have a down too. No "real" books anymore, just ebooks for the last and new upcoming novels? Is that right?

IIRC, DMs Guild doesn't allow for fictions to be submitted. Only adventures or guidebooks.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

But was'nt there any comment here about greenwood could publish next novels on DMG because of this contract?


I think this is the end for D&D novels then. :(

Ed can, though so far he has published a few Mirt's short stories. He is focused now in the TEGG stuff, though (that I see as a good thing).

We, the fans, cannot.

To clarify: Ed is under the same restrictions as everyone else when it comes to the DMsGuild. The first Mirt story was pulled because it was a narrative only. Ed added a few RPG elements and stats to it and put it back up.
