Random House's SF imprint Del Rey recently announced a partnership with WizKids, LLC to create a series of novels based on the highly popular MAGE KNIGHT
role-playing game system. MAGE KNIGHT
is an RPG that uses figurines with dials built into the bottoms to keep track of game play.
The MAGE KNIGHT
concept has caused a collectables explosion, selling over 40 million figures in the first fourteen months. Del Rey has plans for at least six mass market paperback MAGE KNIGHT
novels, three in 2003 and three in 2004.

The first book will be REBEL THUNDER
tie-in novelist Bill McCay, the second will be DARK DEBTS
novelist Doranna Durgin.
Says Del Rey editor-in-chief Betsy Mitchell: "It's exciting to be joining [WizKids LLC founder] Jordan Weisman at the inception of his latest enterprise. He's a true innovator. His previous successes with BATTLETECH
show that he has a real understanding of what appeals to game players, and it's our intention to create the stories that will add to their enjoyment of the MAGE KNIGHT
world."Questions? Comments? Let us know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.
