Publishing imprint Aconyte has detailed the first slate of novels based on the games of its parent company Asmodee.

Seven books based on five different game series will be published next year between May and August.

The first two novels, based on Arkham Horror and Legend of the Five Rings, will launch in May. This will be followed in June by a pair of titles inspired by Pandemic and Keyforge, and the first title for Descent landing in July. A second pair of books based on Arkham Horroa and Legend of the Five Rings will close out the initial wave of novels in August.

Arkham Horror

Each will be published in a variety of formats, including hardcopy paperbacks, digital ebooks and even audiobooks, available in English-speaking territories.

Translations are set to follow, with Aconyte confirming in a blog post that it is close to finalising “a swathe of translation deals for our friends worldwide, too”.

The novels will be available “wherever you get your books or hobby stuff”, through online ereader and audiobook platforms, or directly from Acontye.
