Del Rey has acquired the next two Tales of Egil and Nix stories: A Conversation in Blood and a yet to be named book Paul S. Kemp is calling Ass Kicking Sword and Sorcery IV: This Time it’s Personal. Interesting to note that Rey editor Frank Parisi made the acquisition. Paul of course had some fun things to say about the announcement.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve sold two more Egil and Nix novels, A Conversation in Blood andAss Kicking Sword and Sorcery IV: This Time it’s Personal (not the actual title; but really, shouldn’t it be?) to Del Rey. Here’s the link to the announcement.  As you can see, I’ll be working with the most excellent Frank Parisi, with whom I’ve had several gun duels and two whiskey-drinking contests.  Oh, and he also edited my Old Republic Star Wars novel, Deceived.

It was announced yesterday that Del Rey editor-in-chief Betsy Mitchell will be retiring this December. Betsy has not only been the editor-in-chief at Del Rey for the last decade, but was also the editor for Timothy Zahn’s famous Heir to the Empire. Many readers will note that she helped with the Heir to the Empire 20th Anniversary Edition by contributing to the annotations as well as writing the afterword. We here at Roqoo Depot wish her the best in her retirement.

Furthermore Frank Paris will be taking the position of in-house coordinator for Del Rey’s Star Wars novels and editorial lead for Del Rey’s other licensed tie-ins. Frank will be working along with Shelly Shapiro and Erich Schoeneweiss. You can read more about the announcements here.
