SCHEDULED FOR PUBLICATION — firmly scheduled with dates from Baen Books:
November 2014 1636: The Viennese Waltz, with Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett.
February 2015: Castaway Planet, with Ryk Spoor. This is set in the same universe as the Boundary trilogy but is not a direct sequel. The novel takes place about two centuries after the events related in Boundary, Threshold and Portal. It’s basically an SF retelling of the Swiss Family Robinson story.
April 2015: Grantville Gazette VII.
ALSO UNDERWAY — manuscripts being written but not yet scheduled for publication:
The Gods of Sagittarius, with Mike Resnick. This is the project I’m currently working on. It’s a space opera. Think of it as Interstellar Indiana Jones and the Alien Investigator and you’ll be… well, pretty wildly off but still somewhere in the galactic vicinity.
1636: The Atlantic Encounter, with Walter Hunt. (Formerly known as 1636: Drums Along the Mohawk.) The first draft of this novel is finished. I decided to hold it back, however, partly because it needs some more work and would fit better in the chronology if it was published later, and partly because there are two other novels in the series that need to come out next.
A novel depicting the beginning of the long-expected civil war in France, which I’m also writing with Walter Hunt. No specific date has been set for publication yet, but it should be sometime in the summer of 2015.
Then, my next solo novel in the series, which will be the direct sequel to both 1636: The Saxon Uprising as well as my short novel in Ring of Fire III, “Four Days on the Danube.” This novel should come out at the end of 2015 or early in 2016.
All the Plagues of Hell. Dave Freer has finished the first draft of the next volume in the Heirs of Alexandria series, which began with Shadow of the Lion and continued on with A Mankind Witch (by Dave Freer alone), This Rough Magic, Much Fall of Blood and the recently published Burdens of the Dead. This book is set in Italy and continues the story of Benito, Maria, Marco and Kat.
Dave and I are doing this volume without Mercedes Lackey. It will be followed by a volume written by Misty and me without Dave. The working title of that novel is The Great Doom’s Image and it will follow the story of Prince Manfred, Erik and Bortai.
A Desperate and Despicable Dwarf. This is part of the Joe’s World series, and is the sequel to Forward the Mage. The manuscript is about two-thirds finished.
1637: The Siberian Agenda, with Paula Goodlett and Gorg Huff. This is the sequel to 1636: The Kremlin Games. Paula and Gorg are well into the first draft of this book.
The Span of Empire, with David Carrico. This is the sequel to the two Jao Empire novels I wrote with Kathy Wentworth before she died, The Course of Empire and The Crucible of Empire. David has about two-thirds of the first draft written.
Ring of Fire IV. This will be another major anthology in the 1632 series. Several of the stories are finished but the volume is still a long way from being completed.
