It seems Cyberpunk is making a comeback, what with CD Projekt Red’s upcoming game causing a huge nerd buzz in the PC and console gaming worlds. On the table top, the venerable RPGs, Shadowrun and Cyberpunk 2020 are getting new editions. And then there’s my fast play, miniature wargame rules HARDWIRED and Osprey’s upcoming mega game, Reality’s Edge
Coincidentally, it wasn’t until very recently I started to receive a lot of feedback and questions about the books. Juggling a full-time business and all-time Real Life means fiction writing gets dropped from the To Do List . Obligations, everyday emergencies, and plain old end-of-the-day exhaustion pile up so fast – which is why I’m only now getting back to the next installment. My apologies and gratitude to those who wondered if it fell off the edge of the map – I’ll do my utmost to make it worth the wait.
I’ve resurrected the old notes, files, and assorted scraps of inspiration, and begun hammering the next set of stories. Things are getting ugly in Kepler22, and Seeb, Detectives Lynch, and Junior-Inspector Sarin are about to get stuck in the crossfire.
In case you’re interested, here are links to books one and two:
When the Eshu International and Clar1ty Wars stories get compared to Shadowrun, or the miniatures game, Infinity. Perhaps it’s meant as a slight, but getting mentioned with the venerable cyberpunk/fantasy RPG or an excellent sci fi skirmish table top wargame out of Spain that produces some of the finest 28mm miniatures in production today ain’t too shabby. Really. It’s not like I’m hammering out War and Peace here.
UPDATE on Shift Tense, Part 3. “Angels”: Just heard from my editor. He’ll finish the ms late this month, so that puts the release the first week of Feb. A thousand thanks.
