Dabir and Asim Return

The new eBook short story collection of Dabir and Asim stories is titled The Waters of Eternity and is NOW available for 2.99 at iBooks, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and likely other places besides. If you’re friends of Dabir and Asim, I hope you’ll help spread the word. A sneak peek of the first four chapters of The Desert of Souls is included at the back of the collection.

Here’s another pic of the eBook cover, by Ervin Serrano.

In other news, work on the next novel is getting closer to completion. I’ve been adding some new wrinkles to the middle parts, which means more excitement, though more trouble for poor Asim. I’ve seen two gorgeous iterations of the cover that I wish I could share. I think that means a final version will be available for showing soon. The Bones of the Old Ones is still scheduled in hardback for late spring/early summer of ’12. And don’t forget the re-release of The Desert of Souls in trade paperback for late January ’12!

Pathfinder Tales Web Fiction Chat

My friend and fellow Pathfinder author, the talented Dave Gross, had been assembling a series of Pathfinder fiction chats over the last few months, and there are two more coming up very, very soon. This month, to accommodate people in more time zones, there are  two Pathfinder Tales chats, each featuring about ten authors of Pathfinder Tales short fiction.

Authors expected to attend include Richard Lee Byers, Elaine Cunningham, J.C. Hay, Dave Gross, Liane Merciel, Erik Mona, Kevin Andrew Murphy, Steven Savile, Amber E. Scott, James Sutter, Bill Ward, and me — at least for the second session.

To prepare for the event, check out the glorious and free web fiction.

The events officially last one hour, but some folks hang out much later, so come on by even if you must be late. To join the event, point your browser to, choose a screen name, and type “/join PFTales.”

November News

I’ve only emerged from my writer’s cave a few time over the last few months. Mostly I’ve either been picking away at the upcoming short story collection, or revising the second Dabir and Asim novel, The Bones of the Old Ones, to be released in late spring of 2012.

In mid-October I sat down with the editor/publisher of the first Dabir and Asim story I ever wrote, Fraser Ronald. He and a talented group of friends run a podcast called Accidental Suvivors, and they were kind enough to invite me on for a chat about writing, editing, Harold Lamb, gaming, and related topics. You can find it here.

The new short story collection of Dabir and Asim stories is titled The Waters of Eternity and is available for pre-order now at iBooks, Amazon, and likely other places besides. I’ll have further updates as the release gets closer. For now, though, here’s a pic of the cover. I don’t yet have artist information, but I’ll be supplying it next week.
