Here’s a quick guide to stuff I’m writing that should be out in 2019:
Mermaid Precinct. The fifth novel in the “Precinct” series of fantasy police procedurals, this features Lieutenants Danthres Tresyllione and Torin ban Wyvald being tasked with solving the murder of the legendary Pirate Queen. I’m shooting to have this out in February from eSpec Books.
A Furnace Sealed. The first book in the Adventures of Bram Gold, a Bronx-based Courser–a hunter-for-hire who deals with supernatural creatures, mystical happenings, and things that go booga-booga in the night. Just got the galleys on this, so I’m hoping WordFire Press will have this out in February as well. There will be a cover reveal for this book very soon.
Alien: Isolation. This has officially been moved to a July 2019 release for various external reasons having nothing to do with me or this book, just a better schedule for Titan and Fox. This novel will be partly an adaptation of the hit 2014 video game, partly Ripley family backstory, as we learn a great deal about both Ellen and Amanda Ripley.
Brave New Girls. I will be submitting a story to the next in this series of charity anthologies edited by Paige Daniels and Mary Fan, featuring a new character I recently conceived that I’m dying to now write adventures of. The book should be out in July as well.
Unearthed. I will also have a Cassie Zukav story in this charity anthology from Altrix Books edited by the wonderful Kara Dennison. It will be the oft-reference tale of a UFO that Cassie finds in the Dry Tortugas.
Release the Virgins! I will have a “Precinct” story in this Michael A. Ventrella-edited anthology from Fantastic Books, entitled “The Midwinter of Our Discontent.”
Another Fine Day in Gotham City. I will be contributing a piece to this overview of the 1966 Batman TV series.
Thrilling Adventure Yarns. The latest anthology from Crazy 8 Press will be edited by Robert Greenberger, and will feature old-fashioned pulp stories. I’m doing a 50s-style alien invasion movie that I’m really looking forward to writing. It, too, will be out in July.
Tor.com. The great superhero movie rewatch will continue unabated every Friday through 2019 — I’ve got enough movies to keep me going until August at least. I’ll also be reviewing each episode of Star Trek: Discovery and Short Treks as they come out, and I’m sure I’ll be writing other things, too.
There may be other things, and there will be one definite thing that hasn’t been officially announced yet, but which will be pretty spectacular.
