Paizo Announces New Pathfinder Fiction Line
Authors Include Elaine Cunningham, Dave Gross, Paul Kemp
Paizo Publishing is proud to announce a new line of Pathfinder novels to support the smash hit Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, the most successful tabletop roleplaying release of 2009. Pathfinder novels launch in September 2010 with the release of Winter Witch, a new novel from New York Times best selling author Elaine Cunningham. In October, Paizo will release Prince of Wolves, by former Dragon Magazine and Amazing Stories editor Dave Gross. Additional novels—including a new adventure from popular novelist Paul Kemp—will follow throughout 2011.
Pathfinder novels are 300–page mass market paperbacks, and have a cover price of $9.99. They will be sold through book and hobby game channels, as well as directly from the publisher at paizo.com. Paizo will also offer a subscription to the Pathfinder fiction line, with subscribers receiving free electronic copies of the books they purchase as part of their subscription. Pathfinder fiction will also be available as PDFs, and other electronic formats may be announced in the future. Additional releases will be scheduled roughly every three months.
"One of the big attractions of writing for Paizo is that I know these guys and how much they care about creating a vivid, exciting world for their game. You can see that passion reflected in the enthusiasm of the fans. I’ve never seen a more devoted, creative group," said author Dave Gross. "It’s a big thrill to be a part of the Pathfinder novel line so early. The Pathfinder Campaign Setting is still a pretty comprehensive bible, but with so little carved into stone there’s enormous freedom to expand and detail the world. It’s a great place to tell new stories."
"I’ve been waiting a very long time to write a story like Winter Witch—an adult version of a Slavic fairytale, set in a land that’s both sinister and beautiful," said Elaine Cunningham. "The folks at Paizo are a joy to work with."
Details on the first two Pathfinder novels follow:
