Asmodee Launches Fiction Imprint Aconyte

Games publisher and distributor Asmodee has created a new fiction imprint to identify licenses for third-party tie-in books and create novels based on the company’s properties.

Former Angry Robot publisher Marc Gascoigne has been hired to lead the new imprint. He will be tasked with establishing deals for Asmodee board game properties including Catan, Ticket to Ride and Pandemic.

“Asmodee’s stated mission is to bring the world ‘Great Games, Amazing Stories,’” says Andy Jones, head, Asmodee Entertainment. “Aconyte is another key milestone along that path, literally creating those amazing stories and bringing further depth, intrigue, characters and narrative to some of the best game worlds ever created.”
