Hello-

Yes Wooly - they do - though they can (and do) vary a lot more. I think I'm aware of *maybe* 1/2 dozen CD's / DVD that have not come out on a Tuesday in the last dozen years or so. However - generally there are books released Mon-Fri fairly often. Though I will conceed - that the bulk of them are released on Tuesdays (probably 40% - my personal guess). Its actually not totally unheard of to have a Sat release (Harry Potter).

Yup, anything with a Strict on Sale date, with exceptions such as Harry Potter, almost always hit the shelves on Tuesdays. Usually only WotC hardcovers have the SoS date with paperbacks having a much less regulated release date meaning they can be shelved when they show up, but most stores tend to adhere to both types of release dates. A store can get in BIG trouble for breaking an SoS date.

Hello-

Certainly - it has been my experience that the WoTC hardcovers have the Tuesday date almost exclusively. Sometimes the paperbacks are - sometimes not, as you said. However - just for completeness from my end of things (the retail end, as opposed to the publishing end) we DO see many books released on dates other than Tuesdays, just not normally WoTC items. In fact - last week or the week before IIRC had a large number of books released on either Thu or Fri - can't remember which exactly. I think that the spread throughout the week is a good thing though. :)

Interestingly - in case anyone cares - :) - I can't seem to get information on forthcoming WoTC releases before it gets covered here. Our internal systems have things far into the future (sometimes) and all of the WoTC items I can see now have already been mentioned. So - Candlekeep is a good source for the LATEST information!

I stumbled across an audio CD of the last "sellswords Trilogy" book - Road of the Patriarch whih will hit stores in Oct 06. I am wondering about who is the speaker/reader of the CD. R.A. Salvatore himself?

Edit - My appologies if this is of topic.

Hello,

Can a lucky scribe who will receive is copy of The swords of Eveningstar in the next few days check for us if the titles of the next two books are, as usual, in the first pages of the book?

I know... I'm curious...

I'm figuring on trying to set up as many book signings as I can get away with in July/August in SE Wisconsin, central to southern Michigan, and parts among them as I can. I'll keep folks posted as possible via my folder.

What is this folder you speak of ?

The only book signings I have seen in my area (Chas, SC) are for authors that are local. Typically the story of a lighthouse or some such. I would be excited indeed to have the opportunity to meet and have really, any of the FR authors sign a book for me.

Alas I am remiss on my reading. But Shadowbred shall be purchased tomorrow, shards but I don't want to face those crowds, and no doubt finished by the end of the weekend, if it's as good as Mr. Kemp's other titles.

If I waited till I knew what I was doing, I'd never get anything done.

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right location, so moderators, please feel free to move as you see fit...It's been a long while since I was on the forum, so I have a lot of reading to do (Aug 05!). Now, to the question. Does anyone know of a re-release of any of the other, out of print books that may be what could be considered...obscure? I'm speaking specifically to things such as the Maztica Trilogy, and Druidhome trilogy, as well as any of the other books from the early 90's? I'm curious, because I'm awaiting the re-release of Halls of Stormweather in Feb 07? (Sembia), and would also like to read many of the other books dated from that timeframe. Any and all responses would be appreciated, as I'll quite literally mark my calendar for them

Some info for you to digest:

- RAS' new series is called "Transitions". The first book "The Orc King" is due in September 2007.
- The forth book in the "Dungeons" series is called "Crypt of the Moaning Diamond". Rosemary Jones' novel is due in January 2008.

That makes sense for the pattern of his other books, as he teased what was going to come next in Lady of Poison, and he teased this particular location in Darkvision.

It does make me wonder where his trilogy is going to focus (he has said on his blog that he is writing a Realms trilogy).

Eh, I'm not sure what to think of this news. I wasn't overly impressed with Lady of Poison, and I was hoping we'd get a taste of a new author.

I like Bruce Cordell's characters, and I really like the pacing of his novels. He comes up with some interesting ideas. On the other hand, he has a tendency to use "modernisms" which tends to kind of mess with my suspension of disbelief, and his novels seem to feel a bit more like "general" D&D novels rather than Forgotten Realms novels.

That having been said, I'm betting that his Stardeep novel features his "sobriety challenged" star elf from Darkvision, and given that Star Elves, the Sidleyuir, and Deep Imaskar were his concepts, I'm interested to see what he does with them (and I'm betting that either the Sidleyuir or Deep Imaskar is the setting for his trilogy).

Yeah, Lady of Poison struck me as one of those books that might fall into the category of "good novel, but not a good Realms novel". Also, I didn't care for the way the human Nentyarch in the UE sourcebook turned elven for no apparent reason in the novel, and the "gifting of items" part was a bit corny and cliche...although to be fair, it probably would have been more silly to send the heroes off on an important quest and give them no assistance whatsoever. *shrug*

And yes, I did notice that Bruce Cordell's stories all seem to take place in the Unapproachable East.

I was looking at the upcoming Lady Penienent series/trilogy and I couldn't figure out if it directly ties back to the WotSQ novels or not. Does anyone know?

I never read the WotSQ as I was just too "drow"'d out when they started coming out, and then there ended up being 7 of them so I still haven't been able to bring myself to buy them all, but this upcoming release looks interesting and if WotSQ is "required" reading I'll man up and get them...

Actually, there were 6 of them. The series is quite popular with a lot of people. I didn't really care for it, but I am outvoted on that one by a huge margin.

I'm certainly not one of them. Dissolution was fun, though by about the third or fourth book I was beginning to tire of the near constant drow themes at play within the series.

This may have been because I read one directly after the other. Perhaps I should've taken breaks in-between each book and read something else.

Hi,

Just thought I'd consolodate some information, as a temporary reference until Jhoebryn finds time to update the list at the beginning of this thread. Sorry if I repeat anything that's already been gone over thoroughly:

Though Wizards of the Coast isn't listing the book yet, amazon.ca, [and, I assume, .com as well], has Paul S Kemp's "Shadowstorm", The Twilight War Book 2, down for a release in August 2007. This to come in the same month as Ed Greenwood's "Swords of Dragonfire". Joy unbounded!

Book 2 of Lisa Smedman's trilogy The Lady Penitent appears to be called "Storm of the Dead". Amazon has the book down for August, but Wizards lists it for September, [in their character profile for Halisstra Melarn on the Wizards books page, I think], and as they're publishing the thing I assume they would know best. Also in the character profile Book 3 is listed as "Ascendancy of the Last", and is slated for a June 2008 release.

I heard somewhere that Book 1 of R A Salvatore's Transitions series was only tentatively titled, but according to Amazon it's still called "The Orc King", and is holding firm for this September.

I've got no confirmation on these last bits beyond Amazon, and I've never heard anyone accuse them of being infallible. Even so, according to Amazon Rosemary Jones' "Crypt of the Moaning Diamond" is coming out in November of 2007, rather than January 08 as originally thought. They also list Ed Gentry's "neversfall", Book 1 of the Citadels, as coming out in November, in the same month as the last Dungeons novel. Maybe they're wrong?

Lots of good sounding Realms reading ahead! Glorious.

One intriguing thing I forgot to mention:

Amazon has a november listing for something called "the Anotated Elminster Collector's Edition". Its priced more like a novel than a sourcebook, and according to the sight's details has 880 pages. Perhaps a repackaging of the first three Elminster novels with illuminating notes? Very interesting indeed.

The Amazon listing reveals:
quote:
A look inside the mysterious mind of Ed Greenwood!

The Annotated Elminster collects the first three of Ed Greenwood's classic Elminster novels: Elminster: The Making of a Mage, Elminster in Myth Drannor, and The Temptation of Elminster for the first time in a deluxe omnibus edition. Extensive annotations by the author will provide fascinating insight into not only the books themselves but the process of creation that made the Forgotten Realms(R) world this generation's greatest fantasy setting.

These three books chronicle the early years of the Realms' most powerful and most colorful wizard, the Sage of Shadowdale, Elminster. Follow Elminster from his humble beginnings as a traveling mage to the tragic collapse of an elven empire, and on to a personal turning point that could have sent him down a path to corruption and darkness.
