...AND WE’RE BACK
The big news since this site went dark is that Strange And Cozy, the anthology I co-edited with the creator of Gunfighter Gothic, Mark Bousquet, is out, available in paperback and Kindle format. The book features tales that fuse pulp genres with the cozy mystery, including new stories by NTA contributor I.A. Watson, Joel Jenkins and others as well as ‘A Bullet for The Bride,’ a new Dreamcatcher tale where Maybelle and Colin travel to San Christobal for a wedding...and a murder! This is the first story that explores a city outside of Nocturne, and it should be a doozy. Go get your copy from Amazon here.
It’s also not too late to get a copy of A Grimoire of Eldritch Inquests, the Josh Reynolds edited collection of tales featuring psychic detectives. My contribution, ‘Body Of Proof’ sees Maybelle trying to determine why a man is still walking around after his son murdered him. Get your copy here.
The illustrations are being done for Shadow Legion: The Shape Of Fears To Come, the next Legion book. While I can’t show you them just yet, let me just say they’re knockouts!
‘Strange Weathers,’ the new El Cuevo story for this year’s Pulpworks Christmas Annual has been turned in. This story will be significant, as it will both make a connection between the Cuevo tales and the Shadow Legion and give fans of the frontier exorcist the biggest hints as to his true nature. And if you enjoy that when it comes out in the end of the year, wait until you see what I’ve got planned for Halloween next year....
The next book in the Shadow Legion, the second novel, is in the process of being written. All the characters will be back, including a few from Shape in some new circumstances, and a new type of adventure as the Legion moves into a new era of history.
So there’s plenty to explore now, and plenty to look forward to. And I’ll be back with more stuff soon!
