Our new graphic novel -- Allan Quatermain and the Lord of Locusts -- will be published in Nov/Dec by Bluewater Comics.
Then it will be adapted into a radio drama by Colonial Radio Theatre.
Yes. Our script was always the stuff of old radio drama -- rugged heroes, evil villains, mysterious locales, and slambang action. But we never thought it would become a radio drama. Colonial Radio Theatre has adapted several previous Bluewater Comics into audio dramas, and now they're doing Quatermain. That's a new one for us!
Producer Jerry Robbins says: "I am very excited to get the chance to record this amazing graphic novel as a radio drama. We had a hit with our production of the original KING SOLOMON'S MINES in 2008, and this story is every bit as exciting and adventurous."
Thanks. We can't wait to hear it. (Too bad you can't get Pat Carbajal's beautiful artwork on the radio!)
Check the info at Bluewater's website.
Pre-order Quatermain at Amazon.

Vincent Price Presents #26
We wrote it.
Patricio Carbajal drew it. (He's REAL good!)
Vincent Price as a 1930s gentleman detective/magician.
It's a self-contained 1-shot story.
Magic. Demons. Werewolves. Dinner parties. Lederhosen.

Here we are signing ARCs of The Greyfriar: Vampire Empire Book 1 at the Pyr Books booth. They were free! And man, they went fast!
The folks from Pyr -- Lou, Jill, and Rene -- were professional and personal. We loved all of them. It was also great to meet our fellow Pyr authors like Sam Sykes, James Enge, Jon Sprunk, Andrew Mayer, Mike Resnick, Erin Hoffman, and Ari Marmell. The Pyr panel was jam packed and a lot of fun. We felt like we were part of the Marvel Bullpen during the high Silver Age!
The buzz on The Greyfriar was fantastic. Everywhere we went, people told us they couldn't wait for the book or had already pre-ordered it. Thanks to everyone out there for supporting the book!
And more, we heard a constant stream of praise for Pyr Books and our editor Lou Anders. Authors who had published multiple books with other houses treated us like gold because we were associated with Pyr and with Lou. It was pretty impressive to witness the respect for Lou and the label he's helped build among everyone in the genre. We felt honored to be a part of Pyr.
