Well, K Rider, I'm currently pushing on with the next in the series of both my 'Sliding Void' series of science fiction space opera-like novels, as well as the 'In the Company of Ghosts' thriller/crime series of books.

But the main thing I'm working on, is the next big thing to come after the Jackelian books. The sixth Jackelian novel will be the last in the series. It's called 'From the Deep of the Dark' and will be out in the UK from HarperCollins Voyager in both traditional bookshops (if there's any left) as well as e-book format, come February 2012. You can pre-order using the carousel adverts at the bottom of this page, as it happens.

From memory, I don't think Tor have made an offer yet for this book in the USA - but as you might know, they're running about two years behind the UK's release schedule, so they still have to release 'Secrets of the Fire Sea' (book 4) - which they do own the American rights to. I can't recall if the purchased the rights to 'Jack Cloudie' (book 5) at the same time - terrible memory, comes with age, I'm told. Have to check on that.

I can't tell you too much about what's coming next after the Jackelian books. It's kind of a secret. But it's way exciting, and my fans should love it!

Very kind of you to say so. Always nice to hear from readers with such, err, sophisticated tastes.

I suspect that it'll end up as a print book omnibus with book 1 and 2 added together (Sliding Void and Transference Station). No firm timeline as to when that will be, though.

Cheers for taking the time to drop a line, and glad you enjoyed it, Odessa.

Never say I don't give you anything, dear readers.  From Tuesday 6th December 2011 to Friday 9th December 2011 (e.g. the rest of this working week), the first novel in my Sliding Void series of science fiction novels, rather logically entitled 'Sliding Void' has been reduced by 70% to the lowest price Amazon will allow for a book - 99 cents in the USA and 86 pence in the UK.

Enjoy, and do drop me a post here to tell me what you think of the series. Chatting with readers is one of the few things that keeps me sane when I'm tied to a desk all day long!

Well, if you're not living on The Edge, you're taking up too much space!

One tip, though, Jan, I have an e-mail newsletter just for my book announcements now - sign up at http://www.sfcrowsnest.com/shnewsletter.php - I always try to remember to send out an announcement as each new book slides down the launch rail.

Sliding Void / Re: Loving the Sliding Void books big-time.
« on: December 03, 2011, 06:51:58 AM »
Great to hear you're enjoying the novels, Janet. I would say between four to five novels to get everything that is swimming in my mind down on paper (or e-ink, as the case may be).

The novels haven't been translated yet, but are available across all the various Amazons (Italy, Spain, Germany etc), in their English flavours.

The main links for the series are the UK and USA...

Sliding Void (book 1)...

UK = http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sliding-Void-science-fiction-ebook/dp/B005V2H54G/ref=as_li_tf_cw?&linkCode=waf&tag=sciencefictioncr

USA = http://www.amazon.com/Sliding-Void-science-fiction-ebook/dp/B005V2H54G/ref=as_li_wdgt_fl_ex?&linkCode=waf&tag=hologratalesthem

Transference Station (book 2)...

UK = http://www.amazon.co.uk/Transference-Station-Book-Sliding-ebook/dp/B006H6Y6EW/ref=as_li_tf_cw?&linkCode=waf&tag=sciencefictioncr

USA = http://www.amazon.com/Transference-Station-Book-Sliding-ebook/dp/B006H6Y6EW/ref=as_li_wdgt_fl_ex?&linkCode=waf&tag=hologratalesthem

Book 3 will be called 'Red Sun Bleeding' and I'm starting that soon, prob. after Christmas, all things being equal in my home life and day job!

All the season's best.

Jackelian chat / Re: Craynarbians and Graspers?
« on: November 22, 2011, 07:45:44 AM »
I would say imagine graspers as slightly short, more human-looking wookies, while the ab-locks from Jago are basically humanity subjected to a couple of million years living above ground in a post-atomic wasteland (filthy mutants!).  Ab-locks resemble large leathery-skinned ape like creatures, with long powerful arms and hands.

Graspers' faces do tend towards the slightly mole-like, including whiskers, mainly because they evolved underground in deep survival vaults following an asteroid strike and the long ensuing ice age that followed.

Graham King dishes some dirt on the new Tomb Raider reboot movie over at http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=84426

Sounds like a plan. But will Brad's wife be in it or not?

Jackelian chat / Re: Craynarbians and Graspers?
« on: November 20, 2011, 10:20:40 AM »
Well, the key thing to remember is that both craynarbians and graspers are evolutionary offshoots of humanity in the far future.

In the Jackelian universe, at least on Earth, non-human races tend to fall into three categories…  naturally evolved offshoots of base human, the result of genetic engineering in the distant past, or alien imports from when Earth still had a space faring culture.

Craynarbians are human-like, but with much of their skin overgrown with crab-like carapace natural armour to protect them from a very harsh natural environment. Think a kind of organic Imperial Stormtrooper, if you're a StarWars fan. They stand six foot tall and their normal human arms and hands (their manipulator arms) have been added to with two extra weapon arms, one a bony club arm, and the other a razored bone-like slicing arm.

Graspers are a branch of humanity that retreated underground during the ice age. They're more or less the same us, but stand about five feet tall, with a variety of natural fur coverings in a range of colours. Their eyes are slightly larger than base human and their skin more leathery.

Hope that’s useful, commodore.

Jackelian chat / Re: Gideon's Collar
« on: October 29, 2011, 03:20:40 AM »
Hi Tim

Well, compatriot, first the prisoner is restrained, including the collar of the title. Then they are led onto a conveyer belt that conveys them into the box. Then a steam-driven bolt is driven into their head to render them bounteous (kill them).

Next, the corpse is tipped into a mincing machine to reduce the body to fertiliser for the glorious production of crops in the community farms of the people.

And if you don't like it, compatriot, then please identify yourself for processing evaluation, immediately.

Hello there, the Disreputable Stave

Well, my books are prob. considered more fantasy with a Victorian level culture, rather than true steampunk (in the League of Ex. Gentlemen-stylee), by those of a stovepipe hat-wearing tendencies...

Nice to see you here, anyhow!
