Finally I have news!

Yes! News! Actual news, and not mere threats of news!
THIS news: The Clockwork Century is expanding!

You already know that in 2012 you’ll be getting my book about teenage juvenile delinquents, hypothetical ghosts, and gangland mayhem within the walled city of Seattle … now with Bonus! zombie Sasquatch and the return of everyone’s favorite elderly cross-dressing Native American princess – Inexplicables – but now yet another can be revealed!

Around this same time in 2013, you-the-readers will be on the receiving end of a fifth installment from Tor – tentatively called …

[:: drumroll please ::] Fiddlehead [:: throws confetti ::]
[:: major happydances ::]

This one will be a wartime espionage Washington D.C. thriller about Abraham Lincoln, Belle Boyd, and the Pinkerton National Detective Agency raising hell to protect a primitive-but-powerful computer in 1880 – smack in the middle of Ulysses S. Grant’s bid for a third presidential term. (P.S. there will be zombies.)

I, for one, cannot freaking wait to write this bad-boy. And I’m so excited that I finally get to spill some of the great news that’s driving me bananas right now!*

* That’s right. There’s YET MORE NEWS pending. In fact, this isn’t what I expected to land first. But HUZZAH I say HUZZAH regardless!

    Wonderful news! Keep the series ticking along. I’m nearly done with Ganymede and it is my favorite since Boneshaker.

    That’s great news! You have a great talent ad it’s good to see it recognized. Also, I have to admit I lol’d when the “major happydances” marquee’d it’s way across my screen the first time.

    Ooh, I can’t wait for more Belle. She was a lot of fun in Clementine.

    Ska-weee! A DC-set thriller with a primitive computer sounds like great fun. And there will be zombies? You promise?

    I’d offer to let you crash at our place if you want to come to DC to do research, but I’m sure that would sound creepy. Instead, I’ll offer to be there with bells on, if you come to do a reading.

    That is great news and since it is in the Grant administration I expect there will be some corrupted files
