Rick Riordan Announces Short Story Collection Featuring MAGNUS CHASE Characters

Magnus Chase characters will get their own short stories in 9 FROM THE NINE WORLDS!

The original Magnus Chase trilogy ended with The Ship of the Dead, but there’s still more wild fun involving Norse mythology to be had in Rick Riordan‘s new short story collection 9 From the Nine Worlds!

The book is comprised of nine short stories told from the perspective of several Magnus Chase characters we know and love, including Hearthstone, Blitzen, Samirah, Alex, Jack, T.J., Mallory, Halfborn, all taking place while Magnus is away.

Riordan announced the news today via Instagram, complete with a gorgeous cover for the companion:

9 From the Nine Worlds is due out on October 2, 2018. Unfortunately, it looks like the book is not available for preorder quite yet.

Here’s the official synopsis from the Read Riordan website:

The Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard trilogy may have concluded, but we haven’t heard the last of our favorite peeps from the Nine Worlds. Join Hearthstone, Blitzen, Samirah, Alex, Jack, T.J., Mallory, Halfborn, and more on a hilarious and unforgettable journey through Rick Riordan’s unique take on Norse mythology. While Magnus is off visiting his cousin, Annabeth, his friends find themselves in some sticky, hairy, and smelly situations as they try to outwit moronic giants, murderous creatures, and meddlesome gods. Can they stave off Ragnarok at least until Magnus gets back?
