Fans of Aaron Mahnke’s investigations into the truth behind folklore and superstitions will now be able to get their fix in written form.

The award-winning podcaster will publish a book series based on his popular series, Lore.

Titled The World of Lore, the series will be a collection of true-life stories based on global superstitions and the folklore surrounding them.

Mahnke first launched Lore – which EW named one of the best podcasts of 2016 – in 2015. Since it’s debut, the popular series has garnered over 5,400 5-star reviews on iTunes, and averages over 6 million monthly downloads. The podcast is also in the works to become a television show set to debut on Amazon Prime in 2017.

“It’s such a thrill to bring the World of Lore series to bookshelves everywhere,” said Mahnke in a statement. This will be his fourth book after his previous novels, Grave Suspicion, Consumed, and Indian Summer.

“Aaron’s unique aesthetic and vision have already made Lore a major phenomenon,” said Editorial Director of Del Rey Books Tricia Narwani. “This is only the beginning for this brilliant creator.”

No release date has been announced for World of Lore.
