BIG NEWS. I will now be releasing THREE books in 2021.

Here’s one side effect of the COVID-19 crisis: I have a lot more time to write.

Originally, I was going to be gone for several weeks between book tour for Tyrannosaurus Wrecks, spring book festivals and my kids’ spring break.  Instead, I have spent that time at home, writing.  Which means that I could make something happen that I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise.

Instead of releasing two books next year, I am going to release three.

The newcomer is the seventh FunJungle book, which is going to come out in May of 2021.  Charlie Thorne will now come out early in the year (I assume around February) while Spy School 9 will come out in the fall.

Obviously, I do not have titles for these books yet.  And I am not going to answer any questions about what the storylines are for a while.  That information — along with more accurate release dates, will be forthcoming.

In other exciting news, Spy School is finally coming out in Spanish!  If you’d like to preorder Escuela de Espias, click here.

Okay, that’s all I have time for.  I have lots of writing to do.

I hope that your isolation is going as well as can be.  Stay strong.  And keep reading.

    Please see my post on Questions I Can’t Answer, which explains why I don’t know what color Erica’s eyes are.

  2. Has anyone noticed that Murray says “But someone pulled me aside and showed me the light. That guy’s now a successful desk jockey in the Paris bureau”(first ss book page 47) this came with the context that he thought that spy school would produce him into a spy like in the movies then this quote was put in. The important thing in this is that he was a double agent for SPYDER at this point and this seems to know more about Mr. E than most as when he talked about this person there are some similarities between this person and Mr E such as they both live in Paris and successful. I assume this is Murray talking about Mr E. If this is true I have some theories on what this could mean. 1 Stuart Gibbs had already planned out how the books would work 1-7 before he came out with the first. 2 he knew a more rough out line of books 1-7 and decided to throw in an early teaser of future books. I believe my second theory is more credible because if my first one was correct then he would have basically written out the series 1-7 and having written out this many books before you wrote published the first just seems unbelievable to me. if this is true Gibbs could already have the plot written out for many books by now. This is purely speculative and this could be proven false.

  3. Stuart Gibbs,
    I LOVE the spy school books, I am so thankful you wrote them. I read all of them in about a week. (Not SSR though because it just came out. So exited for SS9 and I hope spy school becomes a movie.

  4. Stuart Gibbs,

    Hi! It’s Keira Purvis, the one who wrote you a note!!! Guess what? For Christmas, I got a signed copy of spy school!!!!!!! But also, I finished the FunJungle series and loved it just as much as spy school!!! I am soooooo excited for T-Wrecks! Just wanted to share!!!!


  5. Stuart Gibbs,
    I can not wait for SS9! I read SS8 and the cliffhanger ending has seriously kept me awake at night thinking about it. Wish it could come out sooner! (I know it can’t, but I still wish it.)

  6. I love the MBA series the spy school series and the fun jungle series. This is my order.
    1. Spy school
    2. FunJungle
    3. MBA
    But there all the best books I’ve ever read in my entire life.

  7. I was so happy reading the “Spy School” series that i went on this laptop and went on this website for hours trying to figure out if number 9 is coming out because number 8 ended on a big cliffhanger, but was still AMAZING. Love the series, love the writer, hope’s he still going to make many amazing books like always even after the virus!!!

  11. Your books are so much fun to read. I can’t wait for spy school 9. Can you give us a hint on what it’s going to be about? And also, will there be a spy school movie. Thanks so much.

  12. Ash –

    In the next few months I will give more information about SS9.

    And there is an entire post about the SS movie on my blog.

  13. i just finished all your spy school books i really want a 10. you let us off a large cliff it is so tempting to know what else happens your killing me. please with all my heart make a tenth book called the reveal.
    The reveal for Erica’s sister learning about her family being a spy and learning Erica’s true feelings. then you should do like 20 years later sort of thing. it would mean a lot.

  14. -Stu I am a huge fan I have read all of your books can you give us a hint what the next SS book is going to be about and can you give me a shout out plz

  15. Hi! I wanted to say that I love the books so SS books so so so much. My older sister who also read the books once asked me who my favorite character was. I didn’t have an answer because I liked them all. My brother also one time stayed up till about four in the morning reading the SSR book. I can’t wait for the next book to come out. When my sister told me their was a movie that was going to come out, I was so happy. I always try to guess the lot that the evil organization will try to plot and I never can. I begged my
    siblings to tell me who the mole was in the first one and they didn’t tell me. I was so surprised when I found out who it was. Well, thats all I have!

    (This contains spoilers, do not read if you have not finished all the books)
    At the end of s.s revolution, Mike and Ben are about to explain everything to Trixie, so does that mean that Mike knows who she is now?

  17. Violet –

    In theory, there would be a conversation that happens after the book ends, and during that conversation, it makes sense that Mike would learn who Trixie really is.

  18. -Stu

    Is funjungle and Charlie Thorn just books on the side that you just right for fun when your bored of SS because I love SS but your books that you right on the side are great keep up the good work!!!!!

  19. N –

    I don’t really consider that I write any books ‘on the side.’ I put great time and energy and focus into all of them.

  20. N –

    I was writing books all the way back when I was in kindergarten. *They didn’t get published.) Those were so far back that I can’t recall what inspired them.
