Amazon UK has listed two new D&D books with Wizards of the Coast as the author but not the publisher.
The Dungeons and Dragons Quest Chronicles is currently listed as a £25 hardcover due out in November 2024.
According to the retailer, D&D Quest Chronicles will be 64 pages long, and you can pre-order now. WotC isn’t publishing the book. Expanse are.
D&D Yearbook 2024 is the other, and it’s a similar deal, also attributed to Wizards of the Coast as the author but published by Expanse. It’s a hardcover, due out on September 2023 and 120 pages long.
These books don’t yet appear to be on Amazon US, and Amazon’s ad tech/geo tech might whisk you there if the bookshop thinks that’s where you should be.
It’s not unusual for Amazon to list ‘By Wizards of the Coast’ for a D&D book licensed by, but not published, from the D&D owner. Farshore’s Dungeons & Dragons Annual 2023 is treated in the same way.
Who are Expanse? That’s not immediately clear. There’s a sci-fi publisher called Expanse that deals in ‘clean speculative fiction a Christian worldview’. That Expanse is an imprint of Scrivenings. Yearbooks and fantasy don’t seem like a good match for Expanse, so this new D&D licensed publisher may well be someone else.
