In case you want something to read next week…

We’d sort of intended to do pre-orders on Paul’s latest novel, but we didn’t want to wait, either, so the print edition of The Sleeping and the Dead will be available on Amazon in a couple of days (or sooner), … Continue reading

Fan Art, Revisited

He’d read the previous novels, of course, so he had some idea of what to expect, but this one is… different: all that and a “burly brawl” in the post-apocalyptic ruins of Disney World! 🙂 LR told me today that he has finished reading … Continue reading
