Those readers who enjoy the Recluce books will be glad to know that I’ve just turned in the second book about Alyiakal, entitled Overcaptain, which is tentatively scheduled for publication for early in 2025, roughly a year after From the Forest [the first book about Alyiakal], which is now scheduled for release in February 2024.

I’ve also written and turned in a F&SF short story, entitled “The Unexpected Dachshund,” for an animal benefit anthology called Instinct, which is supposed to be out in 2023, but I don’t have any more details at the moment.

The cover for Contrarian, the third book in “The Grand Illusion,” which will be published next August, has just been revealed.

In the meantime, I’m working on the third book about Alyiakal.
