Matt Adler said:Details have leaked, via online book publisher catalogue Edelweiss, of a new Drizzt Do'Urden novel by R.A. Salvatore, to be published in September 2018 by Harper Voyager, the sci-fi/fantasy imprint of HarperCollins.
While plot details have since been removed from that site at Salvatore's request, I grabbed a screenshot:
The URL for Harper Voyager's page also confirms this is indeed a new Drizzt book, the first in 2 years, after previous publisher Wizards of the Coast cancelled their in-house novel line.
Amazon is also listing the book for preorder:
Loved the first trilogy as a teen... but IMO it hasn't aged well... or with grace... both story and writing have not grown with time.
Then again I am old and cantankerous... I've replaced Salvatore with Polansky and Rothfuss, but if any young one finds inspiration in the likes of Drizzt I will not begrudge them that, I know I did!
This is the first I've heard; say what you will about Driz'zt, but WotC getting an outsourced partner for new novels is big.Did I miss an announcement that WotC/Hasbro had reached an agreement with HarperCollins to continue publishing D&D novels? Because that's kind of big news.
