Drew Karpyshyn landed a deal for his original fantasy novel Children of Fire. Here’s the announcement by Publisher’s Weekly:

Del Rey Nabs SF Series by Video Game Writer

Tricia Narwani at Del Rey, in a six-figure three-book acquisition, pre-empted North American rights to a science fiction trilogy by Drew Karpyshyn, one of the lead writers of the popular video games Mass Effect and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Agent Ginger Clark, at Curtis Brown, represented Karpyshyn, who has also written branded Star Wars and Mass Effect novels for Del Rey. The series, which Clark said recalls work by authors like George R.R. Martin and Terry Goodkind, is a sprawling fantasy epic, told from multiple characters’ points of view. The first book, Children of Fire, is set for 2014.

Drew has been working on this project for a while, so it’s nice to see it’s moving forward.

And now for some serious news: yesterday Matthew Stover revealed that he has a brainworm. Fortunately this brainworm is a character called Caine who has inspired him to write some truly great books. Stover gives a nice run down on what Caine is to him on Suvudu. Be sure to check it out.

If you haven’t read the Caine series yet, now is as good a time as ever. Especially since his latest book in the series, Caine’s Law, is still fresh on the shelves.
