Matt Forbeck answered Berkley Willis's question: Matt Forbeck
Not at the moment. The folks at Mojang wanted a prequel novel to help expand and set up the story for the game, but they like having the game's story — the one you create by playing it — stand on its own.

“Writing is an act of discovery in which you peel back the layers of the story as you write it down.”
Matt Forbeck

“A group of adventurers is known as a "party," and not just because they like to celebrate their success together in the end. Your party should be as close to you as your family--assuming your family can cast spells, kill monsters, and bring you back from the edge of death.”
Matt Forbeck, Dungeonology

“He's not dead, Parker." He clenched his jaw so hard she could see the muscles working in it.

"Are you just saying that to make me feel better?"

"No, I'm saying it to make myself feel better.”
Matt Forbeck, The Con Job
