The New Shadow Legion Timeline

First some news:

The first draft of MACHINA EX DEUS is done.  I’ve sent it out to a few select beta readers before I start on the next draft.  There will be a novel length story featuring our quartet battling a foe with desires to take over the minds of Nocturne--literally!--as well as a special back-up tale in which The Black Talon tries to bring the murderer of one of his friends to justice.  The book also sets up the fourth book in the series, tentatively titled THE ELEMENTAL FURIES

The thing that has developed about MACHINA EX DEUS is that it turned out to occur earlier in the timeline than I assumed.  In fact, it happens between stories in THE SHAPE OF FEARS TO COME (which is still at Airship 27, awaiting release).  That fact, plus the publication of a number of Dreamcatcher stories in the past year, dictates that I rework my reading order list I published a while ago.  So below is the chronological reading order if you wish to experience The Shadow Legion linearly....

NEW ROADS TO HELL
“Ghosts of Steel” (in THE SHAPE OF FEARS TO COME...portions of this story actually happen concurrently with NEW ROADS TO HELL)
“A Waltz In Scarlet” (in THE SHAPES OF FEARS TO COME and MYSTERY MEN AND WOMEN V. 4)
“Body of Proof: (in A GRIMOIRE OF ELDRITCH INQUESTS)
“A Bullet For The Bride” (in STRANGE AND COZY)
MACHINA EX DEUS
“The Ascension of Indio Blaque" (in THE SHAPES OF FEARS TO COME)
THE ELEMENTAL FURIES (Tentative title for Book 4)
“A Prayer For The Toy God” (in THE SHAPE OF FEARS TO COME)
THE BLOOD STAINED LOA (Tentative title for Book 5)
“A Game of Heads” (in MACHINA EX DEUS)
“The Fiend In The Factory” (in PULPWORKS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL 2016)
“Jolly With A Pistol” (in PULPWORKS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL 2014)

Obviously, this is not hard and fast.  The chronological order may change given new stories and how the next few books develop.
