Nine years after the release of Ragnarok and Roll: Tales of Cassie Zukav, Weirdness Magnet, which collected a mess of urban fantasy stories set in Key West, Florida involving Norse gods, scuba diving, folklore, rock and roll music, and beer drinking, Plus One Press is going to be doing a sequel, Ragnarok and a Hard Place: More Tales of Cassie Zukav, Weirdness Magnet. This is because I’ve written enough stories to create a second collection, finally.
Here’s the table of contents:
- “Down to the Waterline” (originally published in Buzzy Mag in 2015)
- “William Did It” (originally published on StoryOfTheMonthClub.com in 2015, reprinted in A Baker’s Dozen of Magic in 2016)
- “Rán for Your Life” (originally published in Unearthed in 2019)
- “Stop Dragon My Heart Around” (new story written for this collection)
- “Fish Out of Water” (originally published in Out of Tune in 2014)
- “Seven-Mile Race” (originally published in Without a License: The Fantastic Worlds of Keith R.A. DeCandido in 2015)
- “Behind the Wheel” (originally published in TV Gods: Summer Programming in 2017)
- “Ragnarok and a Hard Place” (originally released to Indie GoGo supporters in 2021)
In addition, all the Cassie vignettes that I’ve written for my Patreon will be published in the collection.
I still have to write “Stop Dragon My Heart Around,” but once that’s done I’ll turn the manuscript in, and Plus One will schedule it.
