Well, the reaction to yesterday’s news that I’m working on Starstruck has been quite nice — I must have gotten at least a half dozen comments from people via the blog, Facebook & Twitter, which is pretty good. I’m still debating about how it will see print… it may be added on to the end of RABBIT HEART when that one is reprinted by Pro Se Press. Then people who have bought the Wild Cat version will have a reason to buy the new edition — because it will contain an all-new adventure. Reading over and revising what I’d written previously has reminded me of how much I did like the Fiona Chapman/Ascott Keane pairing. They play off each other very well, I think.
Speaking of pairings, Dynamite announced that Michael Uslan will be writing a crossover between The Shadow and The Green Hornet, debuting in July. Entitled Dark Nights, the series appears to be unrelated to the heroes’ meeting in MASKS, which is a little disappointing. I hope time won’t be wasted on them getting to know one another again. Of course, I could be wrong and it spins right out of MASKS. We’ll see. Regardless, I’ll be buying it since The Shadow is in it… I did have the opportunity to write The Green Hornet myself a few years back. The Green Hornet Casefiles contains my story “Summer of Death” in which The Green Hornet and Kato visit San Francisco during the Summer of Love. I enjoyed writing such classic characters and the experience made me more of a fan of the property than I had been previously.
The one downside to me picking up the Starstruck pieces is that I’ve had to set the weird western story on the back-burner. It’s not due until June 1, though, so I have time to play around with Fiona. I did receive the outline for my “other” project, that’s due October 1. I’m not sure how much I can talk about that one but it’s for a publisher that I haven’t worked with before and I’ll be adapting an outline into a 15,000 word story. The story and characters all belong to the publisher so it’s simply a work-for-hire situation on my end. Still, it looks like it will be fun.
Currently reading Rick Lai’s translation/adaption of Judex — quite enjoyable.
Take care, folks. It’s a dangerous world out there.
