More information for the Four: four short stories.

I’m never quite going to get over that mouthful of a title.
Veronica Roth announced on her blog more information about the four short stories that she is releasing. We love even the thought of these stories, so to have more of an insight is great!

So, I announced the other day that there will be four short stories written from Four’s perspective coming out later this year, yay! And I got some questions about them that I’d like to answer here.

First, here is an article on Publisher’s Weekly about the short story collection in which I give more juicy details: here.

And now, your questions:

Q: What are the official titles?

The Transfer

The Initiate

The Son

The Traitor

Q: When do they take place?

I talk about this a little bit in the interview linked above, but I’ll say it again here: these stories mostly address Tobias’s backstory and some mysterious things happening in his world before Tris joins Dauntless. There will be some overlap with Divergent’s timeline, though.

Q: Are these only e-books?

I addressed concerns about what to do if you don’t have an e-reader here. The stories will be released individually as e-shorts and then in a collection with Free Four in paperback in February (in the US, at least— not sure how that will work outside the US because it’s up to each publisher). So how you choose to read them kind of depends on how long you want to wait!

Q: Will the stories be available internationally?

I hope so! We’re working on getting them licensed to as many countries as possible.

Q: Wait, are these novellas? Books? Or just stories?

I would describe them as meaty short stories. They will each be approximately 10,000 words long. (For reference, Divergent is 105,000 words long.)

I think that is all. Thank you all for your enthusiasm about these, I can’t wait for you to read them.

And just because we are talking about Four… here is some Theo James!
