Infinity Ring Live Chat

Tomorrow (December 4th) at 8 PM EST, James Dashner will take part in a Infinity Ring Live Chat with fellow Infinity Ring author Carrie Ryan. The chat will most likely be centered around the future Infinity Ring books as well as the two that have already been released, but The Maze Runner may sneak into the discussion at one point or another.


The live chat will be taking place on the Scholastic Book Clubs Facebook. You can RSVP for the event here. As always, we will update you with any Maze Runner or James Dashner news that may break during this chat.

If you haven’t already read it, you can check out the first book of the Infinity Ring series, written by James Dashner, here and catch up with the series here.

A James Dashner Interview from Book Expo America

During this years Book Expo America, James Dashner got to talk about the two books that just came out recently, The Maze Runner prequel The Kill Order, and the new young teens series, The Infinity Ring, and his involvement in that collaborative effort. He also spills a little bit about what’s coming up in the near future for Maze Runner fans!

Out Now: The Infinity Ring

For those interested, James Dashner has another book out called The Infinity Ring. Here’s James’ brief summary of it:

It tells the story of Dak, Sera, and Riq (there’s a reason their names are spelled funny), who must travel back in time to correct the “Great Breaks” in history, which have set the world on a course for the Cataclysm, aka the end of the world. Meet Christopher Columbus firsthand as Dak and the others try to prevent him from being thrown overboard in a mutiny.

If you’re a fan of the Maze Runner author’s other works, then I highly recommend this to add to your collection!  Click on the image below to order your copy!

Update on Movie + James Dashner’s Secret Project

James Dashner just did a Q&A with Publishers Weekly and he gave us a great insight into what we will be seeing from him in the future.

When asked about the state of the movie adaption of “The Maze Runner”:

It is in development at 20th Century Fox, but it is not going to be out in 2013, even though that’s what it says on IMDB. I don’t really hear that much, but they have a script and basically they are just interviewing directors. I really think it’s going to happen, but Hollywood is a slow go sometimes.

Future projects:

I have a new YA series with Random House that will be announced probably in a month or two. The first book is already done and it will come out next fall. We’re keeping tight-lipped about it, but it probably has the coolest twist ending I will ever write.

I guess this is the mystery book that we reported from a Q&A a while back. As always, we will keep you posted on this future project. Because this project is so hush, hush give us your predictions in the comments. You could guess right!

You can read the entire interview here. He talks about whether he would want to be in the movie or not and a bit about the first book in the Infinity ring series that will be released on August 28th.



“A Mutiny in Time” Excerpt Released

This past week, we got some brand new writing from James Dashner! USA Today released the prologue and chapter one of “A Mutiny in Time”, the first book in the Infinity Ring series. James will only be writing the first and last books.

You can find these first chapters here or on the Infinity Ring website. At least for me, James’s style really shined in the writing. The unique names and words reminded me of The Maze Runner trilogy. “A Mutiny in Time” will be released on August 28th.

James Dashner’s New Site

If you have been reading any of the articles here in the Maze Runner sector lately, you have definitely read me rambling on about James’s new website that was coming sometime in the future. Well, I hope you weren’t too attached to the the old blog because it is long gone. Earlier today, James Dashner’s new website was launched!

I have to say, this new site is a whole lot cleaner and easier to use than the old one. Right from the home screen you can choose to visit a section about James,  about his books (All of his series from the completed Jimmy Fincher Saga to the upcoming Infinity Ring series.), or the redesigned blog. You can also go to pages that lists where James will be next and how you can contact him, all with a sleek style and an epic background picture.

While James is getting a new website, our admins are putting plans into action. Please stay tuned and give us your input on our new projects and endeavors!
