From September fans will be able to purchase the entirety of Feistâ€™sÂ Riftwar CycleÂ in ebook form.
MAGICIAN,Â SILVERTHORNÂ andÂ A DARKNESS AT SETHANONÂ launch the much-anticipated programme when they are published digitally on the 10thÂ September. The rest of Feistâ€™s current and backlist titles will be available later that week, from Thursday 13thÂ September.
Rights were bought from Arabella Stein at Abner Stein by Jane Johnson, Publishing Director at Voyager.
Raymond Feist is revered as one of the worldâ€™s most popular fantasy writers. His acclaimed first novelÂ MAGICIANÂ has sold over one million copies alone in its UK edition, whilst the total number of sales for Feistâ€™s work is over 15 million copies. All ofÂ his books have beenÂ Sunday TimesÂ bestsellers.
Jane Johnson said: â€˜Ray is one of the true greats, beloved by fantasy readers all over the world, and the absence ofÂ theÂ Riftwar CycleÂ from theÂ digital pantheon has been a glaring omission which we’re so happy to be able to address. I know that a host of fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of these ebooks: it will be a brilliant way for readers to catch up with the entire story of Pug and the fightÂ to preserveÂ Midkemia before the release of MAGICIAN’S END – the very last volume in the series – is published next spring, bringing to a conclusionÂ theÂ whole magnificent, magical adventure that began way backÂ in 1982 and helped to shape the genre we know and loveÂ today.’
Voyager is also rejuvenating Feistâ€™s physical backlist this autumn, which will be available in B format for the first time along with a stunning new livery. The new look will debut withÂ MAGICIANÂ on 13thÂ September (please see attached for a sneak preview) and will then be applied to the rest of theÂ Riftwar CycleÂ series from January 2013 onwards.
