For those who haven't heard and are wondering, yes there is a third Chris Snow book in the works. Here's Dean's own words about it:

"The third Chris Snow novel - after FEAR NOTHING and SEIZE THE NIGHT - will be written, God willing, but has been delayed because other ideas demand attention first. RIDE THE STORM, the third Snow, has been cooking for a long time, but it's a delicate dish to develop."

Amy | 6 comments YES! I am so happy he is continuing this series. I love the intelligent dog and cat and the monkeys with eye shine! I read them a few years ago but have always wished he would write another.


message 3: by Lori (new)

Lori (Barfield) Awesome!!! I do like the Snow Man.

:-) Don't know how soon that will be - I predict late 2010 at the very earliest (but kinda doubt Ride The Storm will available in 2010) Usually we get word of new books at least 6 months before they're released.


message 6: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (thelastwolf) As long as it's in the works, I'm happy.

It's planned :-) So plan on being a happy Koontz fan :-) After this Fear Nothing Graphic novel is finally available, the next book I know of being released is Lost Souls in June. I'm always excited to hear about Dean's new releases.


message 8: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (thelastwolf) That's the new Frankenstein, right?


message 9: by Dustin Crazy little brown owl, Colorful Colorado (new)

Dustin Crazy little brown owl (Dustpancrazy) | 4789 comments Mod

message 10: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (thelastwolf) He was funny. What's up with the compulsion to be a Jester? Only DK can write such characters!
I loved the Ericas.

I just loved that little guy :-) he made me laugh out loud. Good news - You'll get to see more of Erika 5! It's gonna be interesting to see what Koontz does with these next Frankenstein books.

Guess this Ride the Storm discussion is getting a little off topic - oh well :-) it's all relative.


message 14: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (thelastwolf) I can't wait!

It might be a while of a wait on book 3, but in the meantime I plan to re-read Fear Nothing and Seize the Night this year :-)


message 18: by Jason (new)

Jason Slovak (JoeysDad) | 81 comments Just finished Seize the Night less than 5 minutes ago and I can't wait for this 3rd book to come out! Sounds like it could be a while though. Oh well, I'll buy it the day it's released. :)

message 20: by Simon (new)

Simon Ash | 7 comments It could be a very long wait for the conclusion of the XP man saga. Momentum is gone, while Oddie and Frankenstein are hot.

Monkeys, Surfer, A place called Wyvern, Midnight Train, Fear Nothing, Seize the Night, Science project gone wrong, conspiracy, a character that can't be out in the daylight but who isn't a vampire.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Jenn (darkstarcassidy) | 8 comments There was a girlfriend also, i will read the last one cause i did like the books yeah snow had xp its all comin back to me thanks


message 25: by Dustin (new)

Dustin I hadn't realized that Koontz has had another Moonlight Cove story in the works...


message 26: by Marina (new)

Marina F. (Marina_Fontaine) | 103 comments He's been promising to do it forever, but honestly I don't think he will. Last I heard he said it went in a different direction and became so big he'd need time to really flesh it out. If he didn't end the last one on a cliff hanger, I'd be OK with it, but I do find this pretty frustrating.

Well at least he's finally coming out with a new ODD book... in 2012 I think.

Did he REALLY end it with a cliff hanger!?!


message 30: by Marina (new)

Marina F. (Marina_Fontaine) | 103 comments I count (view spoiler) as a cliffhanger.

Wow! I would count that as a cliff hanger too. I don't remember much from the story. If I had the book I'd check it out - might have to check Seize The Night out from the library.

Seize the Night by Dean Koontz

Holy crap, I had forgotten that, it's been so long since I read the two.


message 33: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sourpatchheart) | 4 comments It's so hard to be patient on this one! I've been waiting for YEARS for the third Chris Snow book<3. He is quite possibly my favorite character in a book.. EVER! Yes, i even place him above Odd Thomas ;p


message 34: by Ciscokid (new)

Ciscokid | 7 comments I would probably place him above Odd Thomas too. I wish Dean Koontz would hurry up and finish the third one.


message 35: by Jojo (new)

Jojo | 1 comments I've been waiting for the third Chris Snow forever - I definitely prefer him to Oddf Thomas who TBH I got a bit fed up with after the 2nd book


message 36: by Marina (new)

Marina F. (Marina_Fontaine) | 103 comments Odd Thomas does get more interesting as a character over time. I liked the last book a lot. But, Chris Snow is way cooler, even without special powers.

What does TBH stand for?


message 38: by Nora aka Diva (new)

Nora aka Diva (DuctTapeDiva) | 246 comments to be honest = TBH

Thanks for clearing that up. That makes a lot more sense than the things I was coming up with :-)

My guesses were:
Truth be Hell
The Bitch in Hell

All I could think of is the H stood for Hell.

Mostly been watching scary movies which takes away from my reading time, but still gives me nightmares :-)

Mayan Apocalypse approaching people! Need to read Chris Snow number three before the end of the world!


message 46: by Marina (new)

Marina F. (Marina_Fontaine) | 103 comments I'm sure it's not a coincidence. We'll just have to wait and find out. I have a feeling there will be no more Chris Snow *cry*, but some resolution will come out for both series through the remaining Odd books.

cdkoontz, I never paid it much attention, but with a writer of Koontz' caliper everything in his work is there for a reason, especially in a work this short. you'll see some insight here.

Now that my interest is piqued, I'll dig further and try to find more reason.
Thanks!
Tom

Keith | 2 comments I have only 20 pages left on seize the night. when did he start writing ride the storm? any news on when it may be finished?


message 49: by David (new)

David Ferguson | 1 comments Next to Watchers, Chris Snow was my favorite Koontz character. But have to say I'm really amazed it's taken this long to get the third book out. Seize the Night certainly gave every indication of a follow-up and I'd read the write-ups on every book Dean wrote for years after. DK wrote that he "hopes he gets to it before he dies." Heck, I hope he gets to it before I die.

The entire novel Watchers is your favorite Koontz character? ;-)
