what’s coming in 2022

A reminder that this post is regularly updated with my bibliography. You can see all the billions of things I’ve written over the years there. It’s currently updated with everything for 2022 that I’m allowed to talk about. Here’s a bunch of it:

Feat of Clay

Book 2 of the Bram Gold Adventures, I’m only halfway through the manuscript, but it’s on the docket to be completed by springtime. In fact, my current goal is to have it done by my birthday, which means WordFire should be putting it out in the fall at the latest. The book will involve the golem that killed Bram’s parents being reanimated, and he’s hired to find out who did it — by the guy who animated it ten years ago and got his parents killed. Plus, there’s this dragon…

The book will also include as a bonus all the Bram Gold, Yolanda Rodriguez, and Valentina Perrone vignettes I’ve written for Patreon.

Phoenix Precinct

Depending on how things go, this may not be until 2023 — it’ll partly depend on when I finish it, partly depend on the rest of eSpec Books’s schedule — but I’m hoping to at least have the next book in my fantasy police procedural series written this year……

Ragnarok and a Hard Place: More Tales of Cassie Zukav, Weirdness Magnet

The long-awaited second collection of urban fantasy tales set in Key West, Florida featuring scuba diving, Norse gods, rock and roll music, folklore, and beer drinking (not necessarily in that order) will include:

  • “Fish Out of Water” (originally published in Out of Tune in 2014)
  • “Down to the Waterline” (originally published in Buzzy Mag in 2015)
  • “Seven-Mile Race” (originally published in Without a License in 2015)
  • “William Did It” (originally published on StoryOfTheMonthClub.com in 2015, and also in A Baker’s Dozen of Magic in 2016)
  • “Behind the Wheel” (originally published in TV Gods: Summer Programming in 2017)
  • “Rán for Your Life” (originally published in Unearthed in 2019)
  • “Ragnarok and a Hard Place” (originally released to Indie GoGo supporters in 2021)
  • “Stop Dragon My Heart Around” (new to this collection)
  • all the Cassie vignettes I’ve done on Patreon

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness–The Beginning

This five-issue comic book I’m writing is a prequel to the Netflix animated series, and will be out from TokyoPop later this year, focusing on the Leon Kennedy character.

Star Trek Adventures

In collaboration with Fred Love, I’ve written a Klingon adventure for this role-playing game called “Incident at Kraav III,” that will hopefully be out this year.

The Four ???? of the Apocalypse

The inaugural project from Whysper Wude, this anthology edited by me and Wrenn Simms will feature some great stories by some great authors, plus also one by me, about the four septuagenarians of the apocalypse, called “What Do You Want from Me, I’m Old?”

Tales of Capes and Cowls

My Super City Cops story “Smells Like Teen Spirit” will be in this C.T. Phipps-edited Crossroad Press anthology this year.

Three Time Travelers Walk Into…

This nifty anthology from Fantastic Books and editor extraordinaire Michael A. Ventrella will have my Mary Shelley/Katherine Johnson/Josh Gibson story, tentatively entitled “What You Can Become Tomorrow.”

The Fans are Buried Tales

This delightful anthology from Peter David and Crazy 8 Press will have cosplayers telling stories in character. Mine is called “Carpet Bomb.” Be afraid….

Phenomenons: Every Human Creature

This shared-world anthology of superhero stories conceived and edited by mighty Michael Jan Friedman will have a mess of nifty superhero tales, including my own “The Light Shines in the Darkness.” I must confess to being ridiculously excited about this particular universe that Mike’s created, and I really hope it takes off so I can revisit it.

OOOFF! BOFF! SPLATT!: The Subterranean Blue Grotto Essays on Batman ’66–Season Three

I’ll be contributing a piece to this latest look at Adam West’s Batman, tentatively entitled “Watching the Detectives,” about the final episode, “Minerva, Millionaires, and Mayhem.”

The Gold Archive: Birthright

Obverse Books’s The Gold Archive is a series of monographs about various Star Trek episodes, and I’ll be doing the one focused on the “Birthright” two-parter from The Next Generation season 6, discussing Worf and Data as breakout characters, Daddy issues, the importance of storytelling in a culture, and other cool stuff.

Stargate essay anthology

Sequart is putting out an essay collection about the Stargate franchise, and I’ll be contributing an essay about how Atlantis didn’t always do right by its three leaders.

Tor.com

The Star Trek: Enterprise Rewatch will continue every Monday, the reviews of new Star Trek shows will continue apace for the most part, and “4-Color to 35-Millimeter: The Great Superhero Movie Rewatch” will get a periodic revival.

Patreon

I will continue to do monthly movie reviews, regular TV reviews, and monthly vignettes on this site for patrons, so you should definitely support it!
