Cool Book Trailer: The Magician’s Land by Lev Grossman


Several months ago, Lev Grossman contacted Terry Brooks.

It was a cool idea, I thought. What if a group of writers read the opening lines from Lev’s forthcoming third Fillory book, The Magician’s Land? What if those writers put spins on every sentence—if they could with the material they were given? What if those various audiobites were compiled into a single book trailer that featured some high-powered writing talent reading Lev’s book? A solid idea, I thought.

Now, months later, we have the final video! Gotta say, I love it. The video features a wide variety of writers including:

  • Terry Brooks
  • Neil Gaiman
  • Michelle Hodkin
  • Gregory Maguire
  • Erin Morgenstern
  • Patrick Rothfuss
  • Rainbow Rowell
  • Gary Shteyngart
  • Peter Straub
  • Charles Stross
  • J. Courtney Sullivan

It’s pretty awesome that these individuals came together for this project. Lev is a fantastic writer and I know Terry is a huge fan of The Magicians and its sequel, The Magician King. Have you read it? If you haven’t, you really should!

After all, the third book, The Magician’s Land, publishes on August 5th!

Return to Fillory!
