Bartimaeus prequel in the works!

Terrific news, from Fantasy Book Review via Charlotte’s Library: Jonathan Stroud is writing a prequel to the Bartimaeus Trilogy! According to Fantasy Book Review, “The new and fourth Bartimaeus book will follow Bartimaeus’s adventures during his 5,000 year career as a djinni.” I’m a little unsure how that will work out, because it’s tough to write a book that spans 5000 years but still has a narrative that holds together, unless it’s going to be more like a series of short stories. But I loved the trilogy, and the snarky Bartimaeus was such a great character with a unique voice, so I’m holding out hope that this will be great.
