Brooks Sells New Shannara Trilogy

If you're  a fan of Terry Brooks' Shanara universe, we have good news for you.  (On the other hand, if you're like me and behind on the books, you may let out a sigh of despair at ever catching up...)

Brooks has sold the next Shanara trilogy to Del Rey, who will publish the books through 2015.

Janklow & Nesbit agent Anne Sibbald negotiated the deal with Del Rey EIC Betsy Mitchell. According to the release, the three books will be set in the time period following Brooks's High Druid of Shannara trilogy.

The publisher released the following statement about the purchase and upcoming publication: "One semester early in his college years he was given The Lord of the Rings to read. That moment changed Terry's life forever, because in Tolkien's great work he found all the elements needed to fully explore his writing combined in one genre. He then wrote The Sword of Shannara, the seven year grand result retaining sanity while studying at Washington & Lee University and practicing law. It became the first work of fiction ever to appear on the New York Times trade paperback bestseller list, where it remained for over five months."
