Amazing’s readers get a sneak peek into The Archmage’s goings on…
TORONTO and HILLSBORO, NH—The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) and Amazing Stories magazine (ASM) today reached an agreement for ASM to publish TEGG material under a first-serialization rights arrangement.
Amazing Stories was the world’s first science-fiction magazine. Established in 1926 by Hugo Gernsback (for whom the prestigious Hugo Awards are named), the magazine is noted for helping to start science-fiction fandom and for publishing the first stories by such legendary authors as Isaac Asimov, Jack Williamson, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Roger Zelazny. Amazing Stories is often cited by luminaries in the field as being the magazine that first sparked their sense of wonder!
The Ed Greenwood Group, a new transmedia publishing company from the creator of the Forgotten Realms®, launches this fall with its first novel, a brand-new Ed Greenwood title. Your World Is Doomed is the first novel in an urban fantasy setting called Hellmaw; 6 story arcs, 86 novels, 14 anthologies, 5 games, and 9 Artifacts are planned between Mr. Greenwood’s first novel and the end of the sixth story arc, projected for October 2022. Next year (2016) will see the launch of a more traditional sword-and-sorcery setting codenamed Pony Island Adventures. More settings in more genres will follow—For Wolf & Empire (steampunk), Lost Princesses of Mars (space opera), and In So Deep (sex fantasy), to name only a few.
“Amazing Stories magazine is—if you will forgive the tautology—frankly ‘amazing’,” said Ed Greenwood, president and publisher of TEGG. “My company, a transmedia concern, has found an excellent home for the first serialization of our novels at ASM. They have a wonderful 100-year history of publishing all sorts of genre fiction, and we are delighted to be a part of that tradition—giving readers of Amazing Stories a ‘sneak peak’ at our amazing stories!”
Steven Davidson, publisher of Amazing Stories magazine, looks forward to this new arrangement as well. “Ed Greenwood has spent decades writing novels, games, and creating whole worlds like the Forgotten Realms® for others to play in…an incredible accomplishment. I can’t wait to see the new worlds he’s been concocting in his writer’s laboratory. And with this arrangement of first serial rights, I and my readers will get a ‘first look’ at what Ed and his fellow writers are doing. Now that’s exciting!”
