Private: EverQuest novels

Publishers Lunch reports that a series of books based on EverQuest, the online adventure game to which my stepfather is addicted, will be “edited by New York Times bestselling novelist R.A. Salvatore, beginning with Scott Ciencin’s EVERQUEST: The Rogue’s Hour, to CDS Books, for publication beginning in July 2004, by Sony Online Entertainment.”

No doubt the buzz surrounding the publication of Grossman’s Codex had something to do with this development.
