(last updated on 6 Feb 2017)
September, 2016: 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.
October 2016: Castaway Odyssey, 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. I’ve got two stories in this anthology. The first, as I always do with these anthologies, explains the cover illustration. The second one… How to describe it? Let’s just say that Walter Hunt and I dropped a stitch in our novel coming out in July (see next entry below) and this short story solves the problem.
January 2017: 1636: The Ottoman Onslaught. This is my next solo novel in the 1632 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
SCHEDULED FOR PUBLICATION — firmly scheduled with dates from Baen Books:
April 2017: 1636: The Mughal Mission, with Griffin Barber. This novel centers on Mughal India.
May 2017: The Gods of Sagittarius, with Mike Resnick. This is a space opera. Think of it as Interstellar Indiana Jones and the Alien Investigator/Terminator and you’ll be… well, pretty wildly off but still somewhere in the galactic vicinity
July 2017: The Alexander Inheritance, with Paula Goodlett and Gorg Huff. This novel begins a new Assiti Shard story line which, like Time Spike, is connected to the 1632 series but not part of it. In this story line, an Assiti Shard transposes a modern cruise liner into the Mediterranean just after the death of Alexander the Great.
September, 2017: Iron Angels, with Alistair Kimble. This novel is a cross between urban fantasy and a police procedural. My co-author is an FBI agent.
December 2017: 1636: The Vatican Sanction, with Charles Gannon. This novel is the sequel to 1635: The Papal Stakes.
DONE BUT NOT YET SCHEDULED:
1637: The Volga Rules, with Paula Goodlett and Gorg Huff. This is the sequel to 1636: The Kremlin Games.
1636: The Mandate of Heaven, with Iver Cooper. This novel centers on China in the last days of the Ming dynasty.
ALSO UNDERWAY — manuscripts being written but not yet scheduled for publication:
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.
Castaway Peril, with Ryk Spoor. This novel is the direct sequel to Castaway Odyssey.
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. I’m now working on the final draft.
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.
Council of Fire, with Walter Hunt. This novel is set in a fantasy/alternate history North America in the mid-18th century. The passage of Halley’s comet in 1759 triggers a catastrophe that sunders the New World from the Old World, and unleashes magic in the New World.
