The Sword of Shannara Limited Edition is available for pre-order now!
In early 2016, Grim Oak Press acquired the rights to produce 1000 high-end copies of the New York Times bestselling epic fantasy novel, bringing esteemed artist Marc Simonetti in for cover and interior art duties. This is something that has been in the works for some time. Several years ago, Terry asked his readers if they’d be interested in beautiful hardcover editions of the first three Shannara novels. The unanimous response has driven Grim Oak Press to do just that.
The original three Shannara novels as well as Terry’s writing guide/memoir Sometimes the Magic Works are a part of the deal. We are currently moving forward with The Sword of Shannara. Marc Simonetti has finished the cover art and interior work for the book and it will go to the printer in early November, to ship in December.

Working with artist Marc Simonetti has been an absolute joy, his ideas and talent invaluable. Terry is also very involved in the production of these books, having helped pick the scenes that will be depicted and offering valuable insight into what each piece should look like. As for me, I’ve been a Terry Brooks fan since 1988 when I first read The Sword of Shannara. Those first three books informed my young adulthood and shaped my writing life. I have always wanted beautiful editions. I now have the opportunity to do just that.
These double-signed editions are limited to 1000 copies. And about half have already been pre-ordered.
