    This blog lists the introductory pages for , and . These pages were only included in their respective books, and weren't transferred to later editions like the stories themselves. Similarly to the single-page stories from the 2007 reprints, these are rare, and most people don't have access to some/all of them.


    Far far away, jutting out into the emptiness beyond, like the figurehead of a mighty stone ship, is the Edge. There are many who inhabit its various landscapes; from the trolls, trogs and goblins of the perilous Deepwoods, to the phantasms and spectres of the treacherous Twilight Woods. The main town is Undertown, a seething urban sprawl which straddles the Edgewater River. Above it — fixed in position by the great Anchor Chain — is …

    NOTE THAT THIS Q&A IS NOW OVER AND NEW QUESTIONS WILL NOT BE ANSWERED


    The Edge Chronicles Facebook have announced that they will be having an interview with Paul Stewart about The Descenders. In this post, we can compile our best questions for him.


    • Why did Nate never mention his half-brother, Thadeus, and which parent do they share? 
    • Will we get any more information about the Midwood Decks or Riverrise in The Descenders?
    • About how long do you imagine that the First Age of Flight lasted?
    • What was there before the Mire? If it's now grassland, was it like that as well before the Undertownders dumped their toxic waste there? Or was it a forest?
    • If we're correct in thinking that the word 'symbite' comes from 'symbiosis', then which creatures do Treego…

    In the 2007-2013 editions of The Edge Chronicles (the ones with the newer Chris Riddell covers, showing a single character), the first page of each book had a short story where it expanded on a background character.

    These are currently only available in that edition of the series, but Paul Stewart kindly gave me the drafts. Each of these stories was also accompanied by the characters' face in a wreath. I've attatched all of these images that I could find, but some are still missing.  The pages were then removed from the 2013 editions (the ones which have the Jeff Nentrup covers). Similarly to the introductions of , and , these are rare, meaning most people whon't have access to some/all of them.

    Wasn't sure where to put this, so I decided to make a blog about it.  :D

    I've been a fan of the Edge Chronicles for many years now, but I've only just realised (after seeing the list of deaths) how few characters actually knew their parents, especially their mothers.

    • Vilnix - Abandoned in the Undertown Sewers
    • Quint - His mother died when he was 3
    • Maris - Her mother died in childbirth, father died when she was 15
    • Twig - Left in a woodtroll village at birth, never met his real mother
    • Cowlquape - His mother died when he was a child
    • Keris - Her mother died when she was 1, father left when she was 3
    • Rook - Both parents died when he was 5
    • Felix and Varis - No mention of a mother, so Fenbrus was probably their only parent
    • Xanth - No parents mentioned
    • Nate -…
