    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 Treegoblins have a symbiotic relationship with? Gyles have Spindlebugs, Gno…

    In the editions of The Edge Chronicles that were printed 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 current (as of January 2018) editions, which have the Jeff Nentrup covers. 


    • These may not be exactly word-for-word what is in the books, because these were drafts.
    • Initially, the hat-tipper's name was Brummel, but it was later ch…

    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
    • 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
    • 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 - No mother, his father was killed when he was 12-13
    • Slip -…
