Q: In other threads, the subject of the Age of Conan novels has been brought up a few times. I'm wondering what, if anything, is being done with this line. Will it continue as is (trilogies)? Will it take a new direction (smaller, stand-alone books, maybe)? Or is it DOA?
A: We are planning for a new push in the publishing program, including new AoC books to be developed in sync with MMO updates and game expansions. Whether it be trilogies or stand-alones is a future question.
I'd like to see ol' Vincent Darlage, writer of several of the Mongoose publications for the pen and paper RPG have a go at one of these. It's probably just a fantasy, but I'd also like to see George R.R. Martin take a swipe.. I'll bet he'd be expensive as hell to get to write, but think of the marketing opportunity it would be to have him write one, and expose Conan and AoC to his whole audience with his writing talent. That may well be worth the price to get ahold of that audience.
