(last updated on 6 Jan 2018)
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.
SCHEDULED FOR PUBLICATION — firmly scheduled with dates from Baen Books:
February 2018: 1637: The Volga Rules, with Paula Goodlett and Gorg Huff. This is the sequel to 1636: The Kremlin Games.
June 2018: Grantville Gazette VIII.
August 2018: Worlds 2. This is the second collection of my short fiction.
December 2018: All the Plagues of Hell, with Dave Freer. This is 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. Prince Manfred, Erik Hakkonsen and Princess Bortai also appear toward the end of the novel.
1637: The Polish Fracas. This is a working title and will not be the title under which the novel is actually published. It’s the direct sequel to 1636: The Ottoman Onslaught and was formerly titled 1636: The Anaconda Project. It is tentatively scheduled for publication sometime in the spring of 2019.
DONE BUT NOT YET SCHEDULED:
1636: The China Venture, 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.
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.
A Desperate and Despicable Dwarf. This is part of the Joe’s World series, and is the sequel to both Forward the Mage and The Philosophical Strangler. The manuscript is about two-thirds finished.
