Ed Greenwood and Robert B. Marks launch The Eternity Quartet
Ed Greenwood, New York Times bestselling author of Spellfire and Elminster: The Making Of A Mage, and the creator of the Forgotten Realms®, and Robert B. Marks, author of Diablo: Demonsbane, The EverQuest Companion, and Garwulf’s Corner, have teamed up for an groundbreaking new project launching on February 15, 2015: The Eternity Quartet.
Consisting of 16 separate yet linked stories, each providing a snapshot of a time and place, The Eternity Quartet tells the tale of a fantasy world from one ice age to the next, covering around 25,000 years. Structured like a symphony, The Eternity Quartet is divided into four movements representing the four seasons, each containing four stories.
The first story – Seizing the Torch, by Robert B. Marks – takes place as the glaciers recede and a tribe of hunter gatherers face a previously unknown challenge. The second – An Evil Wind, by Ed Greenwood – sees the leaders of an early civilization confront overwhelming odds and make a terrible sacrifice for survival.
The plan is to release one story per month. The first 14 stories will be released on Amazon Kindle for $2.99 each. The final two stories will be published along with the rest of The Eternity Quartet in an anthology in paperback and e-book format in mid-late 2016.
“We have wanted to work together for over a decade,” said Marks. “To be able to work with an author of Ed’s caliber on a project like this is a dream come true.”
“As a veteran gamer and game writer, Rob understands the fun in storytelling,” said Greenwood, “and this is a great chance for us to have fun together that should come through to the reader loud and clear. I love collaborating with talented, creative, nice people – and Rob is talented, creative, nice people!”
