I see it’s been almost three years since I posted here. Buying a house, moving in, a pandemic, a new computer, another new computer, and other distractions led me to neglect the place. I’m finally getting caught up on stuff, though, and trying to revive neglected areas of my online life.
I’m now thoroughly settled in our little house on Bainbridge Island, and enjoying life in the Pacific Northwest — mostly, anyway; the lack of sunlight in the winter can be a trifle wearing.
Since I last posted here I’ve had only a single novel published — Tom Derringer & the Steam-Powered Saurians. There have been a few short stories, though, and there’s more stuff coming soon (all of it unavoidably delayed):
Tom Derringer & the Electrical Empire is ready to go except for a couple of illustrations that are long overdue; it should go to press about a week after those are delivered.
Charming Sharra, a short Ethshar novel, should be out in a couple of months. Wildside’s chosen cover artist had to be replaced for health reasons, which set it back a little.
Thrilling Adventure Yarns 2022, featuring my story “The House of the Spider”, was originally scheduled for December 2022, but has encountered minor delays and may not be out until January.
And just recently I’ve finished two short stories, but I haven’t yet decided where to send them. “The Harvest” is a 7,300-word Ethshar story, and “Three Days Late for the Hanging” is a 6,800-word weird western.
So I may have neglected this blog, but I’ll still writing.

Good to hear that you’re still alive and kicking. Looking forward to new Ethshar books!
That’s fantastic to hear, Lawrence!!
And just for sake of saying, now that “The Harvest” has been released to your Patrons, I can’t begin to tell you how much I loved it! Certainly one of the best looks at lore of Ethshar, and it’s one of the great “from another character impacted by an event” kind of stories you’ve done, IMO! I think it’s great how your stories always tie together!
Looking forward to reading more of your blog again!
Keep up your marvelous writing, and thank you, as always, for your wonderful work!
Welcome to the PNW. We’ve lived close to the Canadian border for almost three decades and there’s nowhere else we’d rather be. Having grown up in a place that was always sunny, the lack of sunlight during this season is a “feature” for some of us. 😉
Best wishes on your current/future writing projects. Always exciting to see what you’re up to.
