Dabir and Asim Series Will Continue

I am pleased to announce that as of now there will be four print Dabir and Asim books and one e-book, all through the St. Martin’s Thomas Dunne Books imprint. I officially signed the paperwork last week.

The Desert of Souls will be re-released, this time in trade paperback, in January of 2012, and its sequel, The Bones of the Old Ones, will be released in late spring of 2012. Two more standalone sequels will follow, each separated by its preceding volume by 9 to 12 months.

Before any of that, however, an e-book collection of most of the previously published Dabir and Asim stories will be released in the fall of 2011. I’m especially honored by this opportunity, because it is the first time Thomas Dunne Books has ventured into e-book territory. I believe that the e-book will be available through all normal e-book channels, but I’ll keep everyone posted as the release date nears.

  1. I am so looking forward to reading your short stories! When I read about the existence of them in The Desert of Souls, I wondered where I could get them. Now I don’t have to hunt them all down! 🙂

  2. Thank you for your interest! The upcoming collection will reprint most of them and include a few that have never appeared before.

  3. That is great news.! This morning I was wondering if there were any new books in this series and looked up your website to tell you how much I enjoyed Desert of Souls.

    Dabir and Asim display a lot of the camaraderie of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser, and that’s something that the sword & sorcery genre lacks these days.

    All success to you,and I look forward to reading more!

    • Thanks for your note, Rob.

      The sequel novel, The Bones of the Old Ones, will follow in late June of 2012, but stay tuned for the short story collection, The Waters of Eternity, which will be available in e-formats in November of this year.
