Paizo Publishing today announced the imminent release of Infernal Sorceress, the legendary lost novel of the late Gary Gygax, the co-creator of the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying phenomenon. Infernal Sorceress releases next month.
"A few months before Gary passed away, I asked if he had any unpublished fiction sitting around, thinking perhaps that I might put together an anthology of his short fiction," said Paizo's Publisher, Erik Mona. "When he responded that he had an entire novel ready to go, I almost fell out of my chair. Infernal Sorceress is Gary's 11th and final novel, produced when he was at the top of his game as a novelist. We are honored to be bringing the book to the public for the very first time, and I know Gary was pleased that the story will finally find an audience."
Infernal Sorceress debuts two new Gygax characters: the handsome swordsman Raker and his cunning daggerman Ferret, a duo of rough-and-tumble rogues ready for the intrigues and adventures of a hostile world. Swashbuckling swordplay, hideous monsters, and puzzling mysteries abound in this never-before-published tale from a master of sword and sorcery. Infernal Sorceress takes place on Aerth, a fantastic planet informed by Earth in the Dark Ages and medieval period. It's also the setting for Gygax's novels The Anubis Murders, The Samarkand Solution, and Death in Delhi, also available from Planet Stories.
