Grimm Has a Book on the Way: The Icy Touch

Lookie what I just found! Grimm: The Icy Touch by John Shirley has a November 5, 2013 publication date. Now this is something I’ve been waiting for and didn’t even realize it. As a huge fan of Grimm, seeing that they’ve moved to media tie-in books excites me for the future of this series and the universe it has created. Especially after that season 2 finale on Tuesday (May 21) that’s still currently available to watch on the Grimm video page at

Portland homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt discovers he is descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as “Grimms”, charged with keeping balance between humanity and the mythological creatures of the world.

Book can be bought at Amazon: Grimm – The Icy Touch.

I’m assuming the book is going to get a better description at some point and possibly a better cover that actually makes use of the title… Then again, television media tie-in novels aren’t known for their fantastic covers and mostly use stock images of the cast. The book’s cover does say “Book 1” which could indicate a possible series of books are already planned and that this isn’t just a one-off release.

On top of that, I’m not sure it’s realistic to hope for it, but I would love to see Amazon make a deal with the owners of Grimm for their new Kindle Worlds program. I know I’d try my hand at it! I adore the show, have written some (inappropriate) fan fiction that I’d never be able to use in that way, but I’d certainly be willing to give a shot to a more plausible, sticks-to-the-known-canon, story. In fact, I have one in progress that I abandoned at about the 5,000 word mark about a year ago that I’d probably revisit.

    That’ll be a neat book. I was excited about this one because it seems to be the first fiction novel for Grimm. I do believe there is already a graphic novel. Thanks for the reminder about Aunt Marie’s Book of Lore.
