BETHESDA SOFTWORKS AND DEL REY BOOKS ANNOUNCE NOVELS
BASED ON THE ELDER SCROLLS VIDEO GAME SERIES

Rockville, MD – April 27, 2009 – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, and Del Rey, an imprint of Ballantine Books at the Random House Publishing Group, are pleased to announce that Del Rey Books will publish two novels based on Bethesda Softworks' award-winning, high-fantasy video game series, The Elder Scrolls®. The best-selling game series is known for giving the player the ability to choose how their story will play out and unfold, and for the incredible amount of lore and depth found in these rich game worlds.

Penned by New York Times bestselling author Greg Keyes, the novels will be all-new, original stories based in The Elder Scrolls universe. The first novel – The Infernal City – is set to be published in Fall 2009. Among Keyes' prior works are the Age of Unreason tetrology (for which he won the prestigious "Le Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire" award), and three New York Times bestselling Star Wars novels in the New Jedi Order series.

"We've been big fans of Greg's work for a long time, and we're thrilled he agreed to bring his talents to The Elder Scrolls," said Pete Hines, vice president of public relations and marketing for Bethesda Softworks. "We see these books as a natural extension of the franchise and think fans will love the stories and characters Greg has created."

The Infernal City is set after the events of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion®, the latest game in the video game series, and finds the citizens of Tamriel once again facing an uncertain future. Floating high above the land is a strange and mysterious city that is casting a horrifying shadow – wherever it falls, people die and rise again as undead. It is up to an unlikely duo – a seventeen-year-old girl named Annaig and the Emperor's young son, Prince Attrebus – to rescue the kingdom from doom. Annaig and Attrebus' quest will take them through the Elder Scrolls universe and their adventure is sure to add to the series' already magnificent mythology.



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Born in Meridian, MS, in 1963, Greg Keyes spent his early years roaming the forests of his native state and the red rock cliffs of the Navajo Indian reservation in Arizona. He earned his B.A. in anthropology from Mississippi State University and a master's degree from the University of Georgia, where he did course work for a Ph.D. He lives in Savannah, GA, where, in addition to full-time writing, he practices ethnic cooking--particularly Central American, Szechuan, Malaysian, and Turkish cuisines--and Kapucha Toli, a Choctaw game involving heavy sticks and no rules. While researching "The Age of Unreason," he took up fencing, and now competes nationally. Greg is the author of THE WATERBORN, THE BLACKGOD, the Babylon 5 Psi Corps trilogy, the Age of Unreason tetrology (for which he won the prestigious "Le Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire" award), and three New York Times bestselling Star Wars novels in the New Jedi Order series.

I think we should go for 10, or make this Oblivionisfav
I wonder what the books would be like though, how do you describe the moral actions you choose. That's another thing I loved. I LOVED not being good or evil, I hate being recorded like that, I want to do things on my accord

Yeah, you had infamy and fame. I liked that. So if you're an asswipe who kills innocents, people won't like you as much. But you aren't evil. Lol, you should rename the Video Game section to "Oblivionisfav"

lol the funny thing is he's like

*gay nerd voice* "so yeah, I saw this fight the other day and it was pretty badass....."

and all of the comments are making fun of him saying if he was in it he would have been killed. This kid is hilariously annoying though, he did this one thing where he flamed 50 Cent, then got to meet him. Then after that, he posted another video about how he hates him

I don't think he would make a vlog, I think he would hunt him down and, how you say, "cap his b!tch ass".

lol I remember now. My friend showed me his idiotic vlog awhile back, it's pretty obscure
