Updates: early May

Biggest news first: Project Brimstone went live yesterday. If you didn’t pre-order it because you prefer to wait and buy a book when you can get it immediately, now’s your chance.

Other news: The clone and I spent a lot of time over these last few days talking about upcoming works of fiction. Progress continues on the sequel to The Madness Engine. There was talk of a collection of short stories in the same setting. There was also talk of the order in which various novels should be finished and published. Right now, it’s looking like a sequel to Project Brimstone will follow Stars’ End (the fourth Tebrey novel), and then perhaps the first in that spinoff series about Daeren Drake that Paul wants to write. (The Wild Hunt has been mentioned in the past as a possible title for one book.) He has hinted that perhaps Jon will finally get some actual “screen time” in the spinoff series… (Even with major Backstory Revision, Jon was still in the middle of the inciting incident, and nearly everyone thought that event happened because of him. And for that matter, the interdimensional ninjas were there to kill him. It’s just that the other assassin wasn’t there for the same target, y’know? Well, you don’t know, but whatever.) Sometimes I wonder if the character doesn’t want to actually appear in anything. I do call him the elusive Mr. Livingston for a reason. (He’s not plot-resistant, just… unwilling to get into this plot without a strong reason. Just shows that he’s smarter than most of us.)

Finished watching the first season of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency yesterday. I want to see the next season now. (This paragraph is a tangent, not a non sequitur.)

About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

  2. I haven’t seen this new version of Drik Gently. I need to check it out, once I finish with The Handmaid’s Tale and American Gods.
