Does the name Bane ring a bell? No, but Pavlov does! (I’m sorry… I’ve been studying psych for an eternity…)
But I’m sure the magnificent Magnus Bane does sound familiar. The amazingly sexy, High Warlock of Brooklyn, is getting his own mini series. Yup, you heard right. Starting February 2013, each month until the City of Bones movie, a short story will be released online in an e-book format, and these short stories will later be compiled into The Bane Chronicles to be released as a hard copy book in 2014! There will be a total of 10 short stories~
This project will be done by Cassandra Clare (of course (author of The Mortal Instruments Series, and The Infernal Devices Trilogy)), Sarah Rees Brennan (author of The Demon’s Lexicon Series), and Maureen Johnson (author of the Shades of London series, and 13 Little Blue Envelopes). Each story will be created between either Clare and Brennan, Clare and Johnson, or by Clare alone (because who speaks Magnus better than Magnus? The author who created him in the first place, of course!).
Brennan hinted as to what to expect from The Bane Chronicles :
Have you ever wondered about Magnus’s past loves and lies? Magnus and Alec’s first date? How Magnus and Camille got together? What happened in Peru? Starting in February 2013, in the run-up to City of Handsome Magnus: the Movie (Also Starring Some Other People Who Are Pretty Good-Looking) we will put out a Magnus Short Story every month.
PERU! FIRST DATE! CAMILLE! Yeah, I’m pretty darn excited ! It’s going to be 7 months of MAGNUS~
And just ’cause I need a picture…

If you have no clue as to why I just posted this sexy Asian guy and named him Magnus, you may want to check out two things:
2. The First Trailer for the Movie (which may or may not pop up when you click on the web link above… if not, the header says TRAILER… click on that and get ready for one badass trailer)
So just to reiterate: 10 short stories about Magnus Bane will be released starting in February 2013 until August 2013 ! I am seriously excited ~!! MAGNUS!
And just ’cause I can, I present you one of my favourite Magnus quotes~
He shimmered with layers of glitter. His gaze rested for a moment on Alec’s face with amusement and a hint of something else before moving on to Jace, prone on the ground.
“Is he dead?” he inquired. “He looks dead.”
“No,” snapped Maryse. “He’s not dead.”
“Have you checked? I could kick him if you want.” Magnus moved toward Jace.

Hehe… CAN’T WAIT !
