Why Shore Leave is Dangerous

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

What’s Next? (August 2017)

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.

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

Half Done Drowning

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
