Mace in the Dark

Turmoil is good for production, at least. Sold a story called "Termination Dust" to Ross Lockhart recently. My first slasher. Features Jessica Mace, an anti-heroine I'll be writing about again. A short story called"Nemesis" will be arriving in the premiere issue of Primeval later this summer.  Working on a sequel to Hand of Glory and am far along in the crime novel. Athena has recovered from her latest cancer bout and is keeping me company while I work.

Hasn't been the best of times, but I'm plugging away.

Mace In The Dark etc
I hope things pick up soon Laird. Credit to you for plugging away with things, especially under the circumstances you have and the worry over Athena. I'm keeping my fingers crossed about the Night Shade Books situation. I hope your new collection gets published for you. Mark.

Re: Mace In The Dark etc
Thanks, Mark. One way or another, it will be resolved.

I can write under a variety of conditions, both environmental and emotional, but when things begin sucking, there's a certain magic that coalesces.

re: crime novel--The yakuza one or something else.

Soldiering on, amigo.

A different one. The Yakuza novel is now three novellas. Sold the first installment to ST Joshi last year.

Yakuza novellas
That's interesting Laird. Does ST Joshi plan to release them as individual novella publications or as part of an anthology series of books? Mark.

Re: Yakuza novellas
They're self contained. I've only written the first one--the rest will have to wait for a little while...

It's so good to hear Athena is doing better. May you and she weather this season's storms of life.
