My story pitch for the next volume in the Heroes in Hellseries, titled Poets in
Hell, has been approved by series editor Janet Morris. No story title as of yet,
though. Currently I have some ten anthology invites on the go, which is good. Finding
the time to write for all of them is another matter. FanExpo is coming this August,
with some great guests. I plan to attend. Hope it happens.
What’s New - May 2013
I sold a Dalacroy and Moirya tale to an upcoming anthology titled Heroes All, from
new publisher Fantom Enterprises. It’s been a while since this couple has seen print,
so it’s nice to have them back in action. The story is called Standard Diplomacy,
and should appear Spring of 2014.
On the flipside, a story I figured had an excellent chance of landing in a Time Travel
reprint anthology was rejected. Disappointing, as it originally appeared in the now
defunct Paradox: The Magazine of Historical & Speculative History, no mean publication.
Sadly, author Andrew J. Offutt passed away on April 30, 2013. In his prolific career
he wrote several superior Conan and Cormac Mac Art pastiches as well as creating
the character Hanse Shadowspawn for the Thieve’s World series. Janet Morris likened
Hanse as Andrew’s alter-ego. I had the privilege of sharing a Table of Contents with
Andrew in Rogue Blades Entertainment’sRage of the Behemoth.
