Michael A. Stackpole has written dozens of sci-fi and fantasy novels, but Vol’jin: Shadows of the Horde marks his first World of Warcraft novel. To commemorate the event, we asked Mike how he got the chance to dive into the WoW franchise, the challenges involved and whether he got the chance to play the game. Without further ado, we present our interview with Michael A. Stackpole.

How did the opportunity to write Vol’jin: Shadows of the Horde come about?

Michael A. Stackpole: Back in 2011 a friend suggested I get in touch with Blizzard about writing a WOW novel, since he thought my style would work for them. It wasn’t until a year later that another friend put me in touch with Blizzard. They were interested, had a tight deadline, and a big hole had just opened up in my schedule. It was just serendipity, I guess, but an opportunity I did not want to miss.
