Scholastic, the U.S. publisher of the "Harry Potter" novels, is set to introduce another major series. "Infinity Ring," a seven-book series on time travel with an online game component, will begin its rollout in September, the publisher announced. The first book, "A Mutiny in Time," will be written by James Dashner, the bestselling author of "The Maze Runner." As it did with "The 39 Clues," a multimedia series first released in 2008, Scholastic will promote "Infinity Ring" to try to continue the momentum it started more than a decade ago when
Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers has acquired "A," a boundary-pushing young adult novel from bestselling author David Levithan.
