2011 - Writing Progress Part Two

The Green Hornet Casefiles (the second Green Hornet anthology), co-edited by me and Joe Gentile; my story "Bad Medicine" is co-written with Vito Delsante; it's at the printer now, so hopefully shipping in a month or so. The book features the 1960s Green Hornet (TV version) and our story takes place in 1964.

"The Adventure of the Fallen Stone" is coming soon in Sherlock Holmes: The Crossovers Casebook. This is the Holmes-Sexton Blake story listed on the book cover, but it's no mere crossover. The story takes place in 1917 and flows naturally from some of the key 1916 events of Philip Jose Farmer's The Peerless Peer, sending Holmes, Watson, detective Harry Dickson, and a Rohmer-esque female character to an out-of-the-way village called Wold Newton. The story centers around the properties of a certain meteor which once landed near that village, and the villain has close ties to Philip Jose Farmer's authorized Doc Savage novel Escape from Loki. Not sure of the exact release date, but I'd expect it this year.

The Sherlock Holmes story also has a strong connection to my tale in the forthcoming The Avenger: The Justice Inc. Files, "Happy Death Men," which takes place in 1945. The tale features a team-up with The Avenger and the Domino Lady, and has links to Philip Jose Farmer's authorized Doc Savage novel Escape from Loki. It's at the printer now, so hopefully shipping in a month or so.

"Zombies under Broadway" is my Green Ghost tale co-written with Eric Fein. It should appear in a forthcoming issue of Moonstone Pulp Fiction Magazine. I don't have any further scheduling details.

I am currently writing a Honey West-T.H.E. Cat crossover story for Moonstone's Honey West prose anthology (not to be confused by a Honey West-T.H.E. Cat crossover comic by another creative team, also for Moonstone). The tale picks up on a back-story line from David McDaniel's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. classic novel The Rainbow Affair. No schedule as of yet.

Coming in the pipeline...
