I mentioned these in the last update, but couldn’t elaborate because contracts were still in the mail, but I’ve got three new projects on the way.
Up first, there will be two more volumes of noir sci-fi/fantasy anthologies like Noir Fatale, and I’ll be editing them along with Kacey Ezell again. The first one the theme was femme fatales. This next one is called No Game for Gentlemen, and the theme is detectives. The third volume the theme is the city, and it’s called Down These Mean Streets. I’ll announce the authors once that is totally pinned down, but we’ve got some great and talented authors lined up for these.
Kacey is awesome, and I loved working with her last time. Noir Fatale did really well, so I’m excited for this opportunity to do more in this genre. Noir is great. Sci-fi/fantasy is great. It’s like peanut butter and chocolate. 🙂
In the last update I mentioned that there will be more Monster Hunter Memoirs novels, in the style started by John Ringo, but featuring different hunters in different time periods away from the mainline series, where I’ll collaborate with a different author.
This next one is called Monster Hunter Memoirs: Fever, by me and Jason Cordova. It takes place in California in the 1970s.
Many of you are already familiar with Jason’s work, but if you’re not, he is really good. This one is already pretty far along already, and will be the next book in the production line for me once I finish the trench fantasy collaboration with Steve Diamond.
EDIT: and I just realized what today’s date is, so probably not the best time to announce new projects, but these are actually legit. When I prank my fans I reach for the stars. I once had a bunch of people convinced that they’d just started filming the MHI movie starring Robert Pattinson as Owen and Janene Garafolo as Julie (with Alec Baldwin as the voice of Skippy).
