Reluctantly put away the second story for Lazarus Gray Volume Five so I could focus on this Box Thirteen tale for Radio Archives. I’m about 3,000 words into it. The entire thing only has to be 10,000 words and it’s not due until the end of the month so I think I’m doing fine. I’m still curious as to how it will be received by the editor as I think it veers into some slightly different directions than some of the episodes that I’ve listened to. Still, if they hate it, I can always strip-mine it and turn it into something else. I’ve been known to do that before! Never throw out anything, folks.
Moonstone is still moving forward with their latest Return of the Monsters project. I wrote a G-8 and his Battle Aces story for that one and it’s going to feature accompanying artwork by Sedat Ozgen, who has done a good bit of work for Moonstone in the past, including working on The Phantom when they had that license. Hopefully you guys will have the chance to see this one in print soon.
Finally got around to updating my Bibliography page, adding the third Lazarus Gray volume and Strange Trails. Counting all the individual issues that my work appeared in at Marvel, plus all the anthologies I’ve contributed to, I’ve now been published about 54 times in my career. That’s not bad for ten years as a professional! And that number is continually increasing. It’s been an amazing, thrilling ride and I thank all of you for making it possible.
The image accompanying this post features a quote from JK Rowling – “The stories we love best do live in us forever.” I like that a lot and definitely believe in it. All of my beloved favorites go on and on in my heart and in the hearts of all the others who share that passion.
May some of my heroes live on forever in your hearts, too.
