If you missed out on New Dark Voices when it was first released in hardcover, you can now preorder a trade paperback edition that will be printed in December for only $15. Check it out at The Horor Mall.
New Dark Voices featured a trio of novellas by myself, John Urbancik, and Gene O’Neill. My contribution was “To Travel Among Men”, the sequel to the short story “To Fight With Monsters” by myself and Brian Keene, which first saw print in 4×4.
There are two more novellas in this series, “To Confront the Enemy” and “To Rise from the Ashes”. The first has been written, but there are no contracts for either of them. If you’d like to see Rick’s story to the end, you really need to buy a copy of the New Dark Voices TPB, or at least make sure all of your friends buy it. The small presses started tightening their belts even before the recession hit, and Delirium even canceled several books. Competition for the remaining slots is fiercer than ever, so we need to prove to Delirium and the rest of the small press that people will purchase the remainder of Rick’s story.
In any case, at least let me know what you think of “To Travel” after you read it. I know there are about a half dozen people waiting for more, but unfortunately it’s going to take more than that to prove to a publisher it’s worth doing.
