I haven’t settled down on which novel I will write next, but one strong contender is the sequel to Dyson’s Angel. I ended Dyson’s Angel on cliffhanger after finally gathering all of my characters together into one place. I actually worry a little that some readers might be disappointed in the structure of the novel, as I intentionally structured it to be closer to a … Continue reading Planning Dyson’s Angel 2: Part 1 – Where We Stand
I’m still working out which novel to write next, but in the mean time I am working on an adaptation of A Cold Day to Drown as a graphic novel, in hopes of having the first issue finished in time for Hampton Comicon in October. The process that I am using to create the pages consists of combing through the draft of A Cold Day … Continue reading A Cold Day to… Draw?
Where to even begin? Following the near disaster of the cove, we sailed as quickly as we could to the nearest port city, hoping to regain the trail of the Egyptian assassins that Amadi 🗡 🗡 had been tracking. For my part, I hoped to find some means of finding passage to Egypt so I might continue my search for magical weapons which might help me … Continue reading Why Shore Leave is Dangerous
After sailing along the coast for several days, one night we set anchor in a peaceful cove along the shore at the edge of the Celtic lands. The land all about the cove was thrown up in a regular arc, much as the earth wrinkles and mounds around the impact site of a boulder, cast afield by an onager. The shore was rocky. The hillsides … Continue reading We’re Off a Boat
Having finished the first draft of A Cold Day to Drown, the time has come to look at upcoming projects for the next year or so… Ongoing Projects Audiobooks I’m in the midst of recording the audiobook for The Staff of Moses. It’ll probably take me another week or two to finish that, after which I’ll continue recoding audiobooks. A Cold Day to Drown: The Graphic Novel … Continue reading What’s Next? (August 2017)
I’ve been plotting to build a couple of different apps over the last year and told myself that I would absolutely do it this summer. Problem is, I haven’t seriously studied coding since I did some work in LiveCode about five years ago. I would build my app in that (it is a relatively easy language to use and [bugs aside] the IDE is very … Continue reading Learning Swift and XCode
Political correctness is a disgusting cesspool and Americans need to take a bath before we drown in our own filth. A series of articles published by The Daily Wire, Breitbart, and The Washington Times savaged USA Today reviewer Brian Truitt for making ahistorical and politically correct complaints about Christopher Nolan’s latest film, the WW2 epic Dunkirk. Hundreds of words were posted, stacks of ad-revenue generated, … Continue reading PC Whiplash and Dunkirk
Waking at the tip of a bright fingered dawn, we made ready to leave the fallow grounds of that mining settlement and journey to the west. Amadi 🗡 🗡 assured me that the Egyptian assassins he pursued were traveling westward along the coast, possibly in an effort to make their way around the coast of Espana and return to their native land. Following them seemed a … Continue reading A New Friend, An Old Accomplice
I find myself cast out from my homeland, set adrift upon the waves with naught but my longboat, a skeleton crew of worthy seamen, and a brand of vengeance burning within my chest. I am betrayed. The gods have looked down upon me from the heights of Asgard and made a mockery of my ambition. They have seen fit to tear away that which is … Continue reading Thats My Mine!
Some would argue that the time for cyberpunk is long past, that the present has caught up with the future in every meaningful way, leaving cyberpunk as this strange, vestigial genre clinging to the edges of science fiction and crime genres. Even Neal Stephenson summarily executed the genre before taking a hard U-turn into post-victorian nano clockwork punk in The Diamond Age. Richard K. Morgan … Continue reading Half Done Drowning
