Release dates are revealed for short story series ‘Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy’

Placeholder for Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy

We learned a while back that Cassandra Clare will be writing 10 short stories about Simon Lewis and the Shadowhunter Academy. These stories would be combined into the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.

They will be co-written by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman. They will be released in the same fashion that The Bane Chronicles were, 1 every month for 10 months and will be available as e-books only at first but will be printed into one book with all the stories after all the e-books have been released.

Entertainment Weekly has revealed the release dates for these stories and who will be writing them (please note that the authors and possibly titles may change between now and release dates like The Bane Chronicles)

Cassandra Clare also added a few words about the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy

“Wrapping up the Mortal Instruments series was a hugely emotional time for me. It was so hard to let the characters go, but I felt I’d left them in good places. All except Simon—his ending was unconventional and open for more story. I knew I wanted him to go through the training process to become a Shadowhunter, something we haven’t really seen,” Clare told EW in an exclusive statement.

“But there wasn’t room for that in The Dark Artifices, the next books, because it’s a book of its own. I wound up discussing it with Maureen and Sarah, and we really missed doing The Bane Chronicles together and thought this would be a perfect second project for us since we all love Simon. Maureen actually loves him the most. We brought our friend Robin Wasserman on board as well since she’s such an amazing writer. The stories will follow Simon, but also flip back and forth in time so you can expect to see Jace and Clary, Will and Jem, Tessa, and Emma—characters old and new!”

So what do you think about this, are you excited? Let us know in the comments! I personally cannot wait. Simon Lewis is my favourite character in The Mortal Instruments series so to be able to read some more about him is fantastic! Bring on 2015!
