Wizards of the Coast, Inc., a subsidiary of Hasbro, has announced that beginning in 2008 the company will release a line of novels independent of any of its established shared world RPG lines.

The new imprint - Wizards of the Coast Discoveries - is a fantasy-tinged speculative fiction imprint that aims to discover new worlds, new talent, and new voices for adult fiction readers. The books will be loosely tied to a fantasy theme and will cover a range of genres - from the mainstream to urban horror to literary fantasy.

“We have a more than 20-year history of discovering and nurturing talented new authors and we’re thrilled with the opportunity to continue that with the Wizards of the Coast Discoveries line,” Liz Schuh, Director of Book Publishing with Wizards of the Coast, told SFcrowsnest. “Long-time fans of our books and newcomers alike will find something new to love among our varied and dynamic line-up.”

Their portfolio of works comes from a range of genres, from the southern gothic ghost story Firefly Rain; a take on superhero mythology in Devil’s Cape; the spooky, memoir The Man on the Ceiling; the literary fantasy of Last Dragon; to the contemporary urban horror of The Angel of Death in Chicago.

The authors of the first five books range from experienced novelists to young authors making their literary debuts.
