I’m happy to report that even though I’m eyeballs deep in the edits for one book and the writing of another, I’ve still managed to find the time to fast-talk my way into a pair of forthcoming anthologies. If that sort of thing is of interest to you, by all means read on.
“Mordiggian’s Due”, a story of the Dreamlands, involving ghouls, mummified wrestlers and thieving necromancers, will appear in Libram Mysterium from Pulp Mill Press. This was a fun story to write–I’ve played with plenty of Lovecraft’s toys, but I’ve never set foot in the Dreamlands. I’ve also never written a story with ghouls as protagonists, which is surprising, considering my love of all things ghoulish.
“The Roaring Ship”, a Royal Occultist story which sees St. Cyprian and Gallowglass go up against a ghostly Zeppelin, crewed by the dead and damned, will appear in a volume of Raus! Untoten! from Fringeworks Press. This also marks the fourth Royal Occultist story sold this year. Two years ago, I set myself an unofficial goal of selling between four and six new Royal Occultist stories a year, just to see if I could. As of 2011, I’ve sold TWENTY.
That’s pretty swell, however you slice it.
