It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about what I’ve got coming out. I figured I should probably rectify that, it being my job and all.
First up is a trio of new Royal Occultist stories, including one set in the early 1900’s, as well as one in the 1950’s. “The Disagreeable Bridegroom” sees the Royal Occultist, Edwin Drood, and his young assistant, Thomas Carnacki, match wits with foreign spirit of uncertain motive, while “The Great Revelry” finds Charles St. Cyprian and Ebe Gallowglass confronting a murderer with a peculiar mania for the Dionysian mysteries. “Unquiet in the Earth” follows an older Ebe Gallowglass and her duo of assistants, psychic Teddy Boy Albert Smythe and amateur occultist Honoria Jobson, as they investigate a ghostly giants and government conspiracies in a lonely Cornish village. The stories will be appearing in anthologies from 18thWall Productions and Pulpwork Press later this year, hopefully.
A new Amina Algol story, “The Ghoul’s Portrait”, will be appearing in a forthcoming anthology from Ulthar Press. In it, Amina and her ghoulish siblings, Arif and Bera, must track down a thief from the Waking World and halt the sinister machinations of an ambitious sorcerer.
There’s also a novella for Imperiad Entertainment, “The Divine Drowned”, that might be out this year or next. It involves the search for a legendary drowned city and two warring factions of cosmic monstrosities.
I’ve written a handful of short stories for Black Library that I can’t actually talk much about, at the moment. Though I can say that three of them are for the Age of Sigmar setting, including a new tale of Greywater Fastness, a story featuring one of the characters from my recent novel, Soul Wars, and the start of what I hope will be a new series, centred on everyone’s favourite chivalric plague-worshippers.
Sticking with Black Library, I have several audio-dramas on the way for later this year and early next, including a new Blackshields adventure. There’s also a novella for the recently announced Warhammer Horror line, which I’m working on at the moment.
There are a few more projects I’m waiting to hear back about, but for the moment that’s it, beyond a handful of stories that’ll be appearing on Patreon later this year, including a science-fiction story involving alien monsters and body modification.
It’s not much, I admit, but this has been a busy year for various and sundry reasons. I hope the next few months will see some stuff added to the list, but only time will tell.
Anyway, if you can’t wait for any of that, why not check out a more recent release, like Gaslight Gothic: Strange Tales of Sherlock Holmes, which includes my story, “The Ignoble Sportsmen”? Or maybe take a look at my Patreon, which has a whole host of short stories, some of which are even free to read.
