Hi, I did a browse of the forums and didn't see any discussion on this aside from an older locked thread. With the SAO Extra out, I decided to check for info on the novels. Looks like Yen Press is going to have both. Is old, and from back end of august for initial press release, but what the heck. Mark calendars.

Good news, hopefully they aren't radically expensive.

The novels were kind of hit or miss for me, quality wise, but overall I'd say they are better than average. The Alicization Arc is actually quite good and very interesting.

So gonna be buying the volumes when they are released. The light novels are pretty damn good, especially the Phantom Bullet and Mother's Rosario stories. It helps that Yen Press is doing the translating, too. Those guys are great (LOVE their Soul Eater translations so much...)

Yen Press also releases Spice & Wolf novels which is awesome, I pre-ordered the SAO novels as soon as they were up on Amazon.
