I was asked about "Assassin's Creed" and I've got bad news: the book isn't going to be published. No, there was nothing wrong with it: Marco Palmieri at Pocket Books was perfectly happy with it. But it seems that the video company got visits from descendants of the ORIGINAL ASSASSINS, members of the Ismaeli sect currently led by the Agha Khan in India. They...suggested that Ubisoft, the game company, show more respect for their ancestors


This would also explain why they took out the word "Hashashin" from every dialogue in the game

oh! pitty! i dont read much but i was gona buy this book for sure... this game got me really interested in the hisotry of cruisades assassins and all that. there are a couple of books that talk about the Hashashin. and since if from malta (a very small island between italy and north africa) were very influenced by the turkish and all that its in our history.... what a loss.

Just because the books are canceled doesn't mean it's off corso - there's still the internet and there are still PDF's, you know.

The wait is until it gets leaked.
Or stolen.

Assassins' style.

It really would be scary to get a visit from ancient assassins who "suggest" that you "respect" their culture. I mean, they've been trained, and stuff. That would be a frightening moment.

Well, yeah, obviously. They're not gonna come in and threaten their lives, and they were probably just normal guys. Still...

Yeah, the modern "assassins" have been trained in drinking tea, maybe.

I definitely know people have the book, like reviewers and stuff. When I looked up Invisible Imam on Amazon (or somewhere, don't remember exactly), there was a short review of it.

"Born to a Muslim father and Christian mother, Abdul Wahid launches a quest for vengeance against the marauders who murdered his parents and destroyed their peaceful village, until he comes to the attention of the Hashassin, a mysterious cadre of warriors that offers him the chance to combat evil as the servant of a higher power."

I keep that review as a reminder of what the book should have been. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

We had more information though, about Abdul Wahid and stuff. Abdul Wahid is a danish Imam I believe, and he supposedly escaped to America to reunite with the former brother of the assassiyoun. Or something like that.

Actually, Barnes was working on a second book called 'The Eye of Heaven(s)'..
