After 35 years, R.A. Salvatore keeps sharing tales of mystical worlds

Author R.A. Salvatore is seen in his Leominster home Wednesday.

LEOMINSTER — After 35 years and dozens of novels, it seems there are more stories left to tell about dark elf Drizzt Do’Urden.

Drizzt, first seen in R.A. Salvatore’s debut “The Crystal Shard” in 1988, returns in the Leominster author’s latest book “Glacier’s Edge,” which hits bookstores Aug. 9.

“Glacier’s Edge” is the second book in Salvatore’s new trilogy the Way of the Drow, which he said “introduced an entirely new culture of dark elves to the reader, one that’s not trapped in the way the original one was.”

Although the land might be different, Salvatore brought several familiar characters into the new series – including Drizzt, the most popular character from his books, which have sold more than 35 million copies worldwide and appeared on the New York Times bestseller list around two dozen times.
