Waiting

lee van cleef
Nothing new to report about the latest collection. Amazon ship dates are complete guesses. I've been asked about the title The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All--credit goes to John Langan.  A few years back he'd used that as a working title for a very creepy cosmic horror story. Ultimately, the title changed and I asked if it would be all right to borrow it...and so it went. Meanwhile, I'm editing a novelette for Steve Berman called "Ardor", work continues on the crime novel, and the Alaska collection is basically finished. Sisyphus roll that boulder...  Me

Hi Laird. The waiting is frustrating for sure and as for Amazon, well, I emailed them in hope of finding out info about a reliable relese date. I received back a very confusing email that basically told me nothing. To be fair, I guess they know nothing and won't do until a decision is made about Night Shade books & its future. It's good to know you are progressing well with the crime novel & the Alsaka collection. Do you know which will be likely to see print first? I tweeted you about how much I enjoyed your superb novel, The Croning and I am now looking forward to the stories that I have yet to read in The Beautiful Thing. You mentioned somewhere that you are working on a sequel to Hand of Glory, is that coming along nicely for you t? I hope you get some positive information regarding Night Shade Books and hopefully it will see print this year. Have a good weekend Laird. Mark.

Re: waiting
Thanks, Mark. No idea about which book will appear first--I haven't tried to sell them yet. I just hope The Beautiful Thing appears before they do...:)

Hand of Glory sequel will be a novella. Hope to have it done this fall.

Thanks for the reply Laird. Yes indeed, I also hope The Beautiful Thing will see publication before either of your new books. One selfish note from me is the fact that I hope that they will be hardcover editions in their first publications. I say that because I'm such an admirer of your work (I have hardcover's of all your published books) and they are amongst my most cherished books in my collection. It would be awesome to see Hand Of Glory and its sequel in a single volume and maybe some day a Black Guide that outlines the connections in your stories etc...oh what a dark dreamer I am!!! Mark.
