I have a few things lined up first, and I don't have an *idea* yet for what that third book will be, but that hasn't stopped me before. The characters are too interesting not to write for again.

Glad you enjoyed them!(less)

Here's the deal: there are some books which should be read in order, and some you can read any time. You can pick up any of the Immortal Chronicle novellas and read them, having read none of the novels and none of the *other* Immortal Chronicle novellas first. (The numbering of the Chronicles is strictly the order in which they were written, but they are independent of one another.) You can do this before, after or while reading the novels.

The novels DO have a reading order, which gets complicated only because there's an extra story kicking around. These go best if you read the first three Immortal novels (Immortal, Hellenic, Edge of the World) and THEN read Immortal stories: Eve, before reading novels four and five (Island of Impossible Things, From Hell.)

Hope that helps!(less)

The Apocalypse Seven: Welcome to the apocalypse!

Well folks it took a while, but it’s finally happening: Welcome to release day for The Apocalypse Seven! I figured we’d get here eventually, but I didn’t expect it to feel quite as long as it felt. But then, there was a pandemic between the time I wrote it and the time we published it, and…

“Religion is still the very best way to get someone to accept something unabashedly ridiculous.”
Gene Doucette, Hellenic Immortal

“I was suicidal for two solid centuries once. That was during the early part of what they now call the Dark Ages, in medieval Europe. Suicidal tendencies were de rigueur at the time, and I’m nothing if not trendy.”
