Been working on the new Lazarus Gray story a bit more. It’s going well. The plan might be for this one to appear in a Pro Se magazine first, before being reprinted in Lazarus Gray V. 3.
Saw that Doc Hermes reviewed Desert Demons for All Pulp. He said ” $24 is a bit of a gouge for a trade paperback this size…” and I had to chuckle. Given the grief I took from the guys at Altus Press when I dared question their pricing, I’m curious as to whether or not they’ll say anything to Doc. I doubt it, since they probably expended their vitriol on me. For the record, I agree with Doc’s overall view: the book is very good and well worth supporting (though I wish it wasn’t at $24.95 for a paperback book — still, that’s better than the $34.95 (!) they’re charging for their collection of Will Murray’s essays, so maybe I should be happy with that). Looking forward to more Doc — great character and Will Murray has nailed capturing Dent’s voice on the series.
TV-wise, I’ve been watching Torchwood: Miracle Day. It’s been… good. But I’ve been disappointed overall. It feels like this should have been at most a 5-part serial. The pacing is glacial. I love Captain Jack but it might be time to put Torchwood to bed.
Loved Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Highly recommended. Reminded me how much I loved the series back in the 70s.
About to start reading Nancy Hansen’s novel Fortune’s Pawn. I don’t read much fantasy these days but I have high hopes for this one.
