Yes, I have one more book planned, which will be the fourth book in the Perseid series. Takes place about 7 months after Point of Crisis...after the winter thaw. I'm pretty sure book will close the series. After that, I have a completely different post-apoc/disaster scenario planned for a family on the west coast. Glad you've enjoyed the books!(less)

This is not in the immediate works, so don't get too excited. So glad you enjoyed the Perseid series. I miss the characters too.

Thank you for the kind words, Karen, and for the constructive criticism. Writing a series presents that challenge, and I think I pull it off well in most cases, but I haven't always done the best job of bridging two novels in a series. The Jakarta... See Full Answer

“Alex waited for Kate to gather the handheld electronics from a cabinet above the navigation table and move to the small couch across from Emily’s bed. Their daughter had begun to stir, but still remained asleep. He really hoped she would stay asleep until they figured out what was going on. They needed a little more time to think before adding a panicky teenager to the mix.”
Steven Konkoly, The Perseid Collapse

“You know the saying ‘there’s no such thing as an atheist in a foxhole?’ Well, there’s no such thing as a vegetarian in an apocalypse,”
Steven Konkoly, The Perseid Collapse

“Occam's Razor" was a principle designed to urge one to select the hypothesis or theory that made the fewest assumptions. Though on the surface it favored parsimony and economy, the principle didn't assert that the simplest available theory should be applied. The "razor" wasn't an arbiter between theories. In scientific circles it served as a guide.”
Steven Konkoly, Black Flagged Apex
