#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR JIM BUTCHER TO WRITE A NEW FANTASY SERIES FOR ROC BOOKS

First Installment The Cinder Spires: THE AERONAUT’S WINDLASS to be Published This Fall.  Preorder here!

NEW YORK, NY, February 10, 2015—Roc Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House, announced today the acquisition of a new fantasy series by Jim Butcher, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Dresden Files novels. Executive Editor Anne Sowards bought World English Rights from Jennifer Jackson at Donald Maass Literary Agency. The first novel in the new series, The Cinder Spires: THE AERONAUT’S WINDLASS, will be released in hardcover on September 29, 2015.

Jim Butcher became one of the most recognized names in science fiction and fantasy with the internationally bestselling Dresden Files series featuring Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. The series garnered a large and devoted fan base for Butcher that continues to grow with each installment; the last five Dresden Files books skyrocketed to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. Butcher is currently at work on Peace Talks, the sixteenth installment in the phenomenally successful urban fantasy series. In addition to The Dresden Files, Butcher is also the author of the acclaimed, New York Times bestselling Codex Alera epic fantasy series.

Sowards describes The Cinder Spires as, “Horatio Hornblower meets The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen—it’s a fantastic, creative new series of airships, privateers, warrior monks, and mad sorcerers. Honestly, it’s like Jim put all my favorite things in one book!”

The Cinder Spires is set in a fascinating new world, where an ancient evil has awoken, plunging the world into a shroud of mists filled with monstrous and fantastic creatures. The fate of humanity will rest on the loyalty and courage of a single airship’s crew. New York Times bestselling author David Weber said, “This is Jim Butcher at his best…It’s steampunk meets magic with a dose of sci-fi for seasoning.”

The Cinder Spires: THE AERONAUT’S WINDLASS is poised to be one of the fall’s biggest genre releases, and Butcher fans are anxiously awaiting news about the release. Perfect for readers of Brandon Sanderson and Naomi Novik—in addition to Butcher’s existing fans— The Cinder Spires is a grand new adventure from one of the biggest names in fantasy.

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS
==========

As an amazing Halloween treat, Evil Hat Productions has offered a FREE preview chapter of the upcoming Dresden Files RPG expansion, The Paranet Papers.

Stand together against the darkness…

In Jim Butcher’s bestselling Dresden Files books, the forces of good bond together into an organization called the Paranet in a desperate attempt to protect each other in the equally desperate war against big baddies like the Red Court and the Denarians.

In 2015, you will bring the Paranet to your Dresden Files RPG game with the Paranet Papers supplement. Travel to locations in crisis like Las Vegas and South America to fight evil. Team up with characters from Turn Coat and Changes to fight evil. Join up with other Paranetters to… well, you get the picture.

The Paranet Papers. Because playing with wizards wasn’t dangerous enough already.

In this early preview, they’re giving you the entire Las Vegas chapter, absolutely free. Call it a Paranet Paper, if you will. And enjoy! We’ll see you, again, in 2015.

Harry Dresden, a Chicago private investigator and wizard, heads to a small, isolated Missouri town terrorized by Nevernever monsters.

War Cry is coming to stores nationwide on November 11th!

This hardcover graphic novel compiles all five issues of the critically claimed, original Dresden Files story by Jim Butcher and Mark Powers, illustrated by Carlos Gomez, set a few months after Dead Beat.

A war is raging between the vampire forces of the Red Court and the White Council – a war that the wizards are losing. So desperate are the Council that they’ve dragooned the experienced and the outcast to reinforce their thinning ranks of Wardens. One of these draftees is one Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only wizard-for-hire and a guy who’s long been looked upon with suspicion by the supernatural authorities. Now, he’s one of them, and his first big mission as a Warden is a doozy: take a small team of greenhorns to a frigid town in the middle of nowhere to rescue a handful of mortals who’ve been targeted by the Red Court. The question is, why exactly are these particular mortals so crucial to the outcome of the war? The answer will come only if Harry can keep them, and his team, alive for one very long night.

Go to your favorite local retailer today to order a copy, or preorder through Amazon or B&N via our store!
