ACONYTE BOOKS, the fiction imprint of global games group Asmodee, is delighted to announce that it has concluded a range-wide deal with Minotauro, the fantasy publishing imprint of the Planeta Group, to bring its novels to Spanish readers in Europe and Central/South America.
Starting in November 2021, Minotauro are establishing a regular programme of novels based in a variety of Asmodee’s most imaginative game-worlds. The first titles will explore the eldritch 1920s mysteries of Arkham Horror, and the entertaining Japanese-inspired fantasy of samurai and magic that is Legend of the Five Rings. Further novels from the worlds of Pandemic, Twilight Imperium and KeyForge will follow.
Vicky Hidalgo, Minotauro’s editor-in-chief, said: “We are delighted to work with the wonderful team at Asmodee to offer to Spanish readers this brand new collection of novels based on their favourite games. Aconyte is a brilliant new member of our long list of licenses related to roleplaying and board games, which have been an essential part of our catalogue for more than 40 years.”
Aconyte’s Publisher Marc Gascoigne added: “We couldn’t have found a better partner to bring our novels to Spanish-speakers worldwide than Minotauro. Their many years of publishing success matches perfectly with our passion for great games and amazing stories. We look forward to working with their talented team to make this venture a huge success, for many years to come.”
