Cassandra Clare to release short story collection centered around Simon

Cassandra Clare just dropped some amazing news at her City of Heavenly Fire event in Newcastle.

Get ready for a “super secret” short story collection that is focused all around Simon Lewis. Sounds like another The Bane Chronicles. City of Simon, anyone? Maureen Johnson, I’m looking at you 😉

How excited are you for this Simon goodness? Sound off (spoiler-free) in the comments!

      I would LOVE to read more about Alec.

        I know. In my opinion he is by far the most interesting character of the book. So reading about him more would make me really happy. I would love to read about Alec discovering he is gay and dealing with or Alec’s realisation he loves Magnus and not Jace. I just need more Alec over all. ^^

    I’d love to share Simon’s story w my buddy. He’s my BFF as Simon is to Clary but he’s just not a vampire yet. Not that I know of anyways…

  5. CITY OF SIMON!! YES!!!! I hope it resolves the end of CoHF….. 😀

  6. Cassie actually told me that at her signing in West Chester, PA because I brought up Maureen and her “City of Simon” request from the NYC signing. Cool that it’s been publicly announced.

    City of Simon. Maureen will be so happy.


  9. Eeeekkkkk By the Angel! Another Bane Chronicles but Simon! Hope that they’ll turn it into a one book with all the short stories together like the bane chronicles!

    Can’t wait! the way she was talking about how she was gonna make some after CoG made me wonder. Also im happy to say that my school is doing a cosplay theme for mufti day and 3 or my friends and me are going as the one and only species of…SHADOWHUNTERS/NEPHILIM.

    They’re talking about Simon. But isn’t that Alec in the picture?

  15. I hope there’s a lot of Izzy in here, I want more Sizzy!!! or Isabelle too

  16. Oppps Alec is the one with the bow and arrows, not Simon. Wrong picture.

  17. I love the idea of stories about Simon.


    I understand why stories such as Simon Ascending (like Sophie in CP2) and him getting more memories back weren’t in CoHF, because it wouldn’t have made a lot of sense. Also this will be a really nice filler between now and TDA. There are five years between CoHF and TDA, so if Simon’s stories cover most or all of those years then we should be fully caught up in the Shadowhunter world by the time TDA comes out.

    OMG. OMFG! By the Angel Raziel! Oh my Lanta! You cannot believe how EXCITED I am about this. *sniff* Our Simon Lewis is going to be getting so much more attention, attention that he most definitely deserves. Our little baby Simon is having a collection of stories that centers around him, having the spotlight all to himself. I am so proud. And can you imagine if one of the stories are of him ascending? I would be crying like a parent seeing my little boy graduating from high school. *sniff*

  19. That means more Sizzy! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

  20. I’m excited! (:

  21. Super excited

  22. Is it like in a book somewhere where I can buy the short stories?! cuz I LOVE Simon! And if so they are definitely at the tip of my Christmas list!
