A Parade of Books in the Pipeline

In 2016 I nearly killed myself by appearing at 22 science fiction conventions, pop-culture expos, and comic cons. I was exhausting, and though I was seen by about 1.5 million people, according to the conventions themselves, I didn’t get a lot of writing done! As a result, the following year—2017—was one of my thinnest years ever, with only two new books released, the expanded edition of Tales of Duneand the new Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. novel, Tastes Like Chicken.

That was a real wakeup call for me, and I got back to devoting my time and energy to writing and publishing, which is my real love. As a result, I have a lot of books in the pipeline, which will come out in an ambitious publishing schedule throughout the rest of the year. I’ve already released the novel Uncharted: Lewis and Clark in Arcane America with Sarah A. Hoyt, the graphic novel Stalag-X with Steven L. Sears, and the graphic novel of Clockwork Lives, with Neil Peart (available June 28).


Here’s what you can look forward to in the coming months:


Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I.: The Unnatural Hairy Zomnibus—contains the complete novels Unnatural Acts and Hair Raising in one volume.

Writing as a Team Sport: The Complete Writer’s Guide to Collaboration, written with Rebecca Moesta—part of the Million Dollar Writing Series, a comprehensive overview of the techniques, advantages, and pitfalls of collaborating. (Note, this is an old cover!)


Selected Stories: Science Fiction, Volume 1—the first of a four-volume compilation of mostof my short stories.


Selected Stories: Fantasy


Selected Stories: Horror and Dark Fantasy


Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I.: Services Rendered—the second collection of Dan Shamble short stories


Selected Stories: Science Fiction, Volume 2


Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I.: The Slimy Chicken Zomnibus—contains the complete novels Slimy Underbelly and Tastes Like Chicken in one volume.

I hope that gives you enough to read…for a while at least!
