lightning-thief-10Can you believe it has been 10 years since Rick Riordan first released Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief? Many readers are just finding it for the first time because its popularity has continued in the decade since it was first published.

In celebration of the anniversary, Barnes & Noble is offering a special edition of the book for $11.15. Riordan describes it in full detail as well as pictures on his official blog. Some of the features include:

  • Hardcover with new artwork by John Rocco
  • International cover art
  • Maps of Camp Half-Blood and Underworld
  • Behind-the-scenes exclusives

Even if you have a copy of the original book, this special anniversary edition would make a great addition to your collection!

Okay, it isn’t exactly a Percy Jackson series. But it is by the same author and sounds like it may be connected in some way.

Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson books, announced this week that he will be releasing a new trilogy based on Norse Mythology: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. The first book in the series will be released October 2015.

Percy Jackson fans immediately picked up on the connection of the last name “Chase” to the main character Annabeth Chase in the Percy Jackson books. Riordan teased “And no, that’s not simply a coincidence.”

You can listened to an archived copy of his webcast from the School Library Journal for more information.

We’re super excited about this new development! Norse mythology is very different from Greek and Roman mythology, but there are also a lot of ways that he can tie them all together. Hopefully Percy and Annabeth will make an appearance at some point!
