The Crossover Novel… More Details!

Barry_Reese_cover_colWelcome back to Ye Olde Blog!

Today I’m ready to announce that the crossover novel featuring Lazarus Gray, The Rook and Gravedigger will be called Götterdämmerung!

For those of you who don’t know the origins of the term, it translates as “twilight of the gods” and served as the title of the last of the four operas by Richard Wagner that comprised the The Ring of the Nibelung cycle.

The book will feature the cover shown at left, drawn by Chris Batista and colored by Tom Smith.

The novel is set in 1938, shortly after the events of “The Gasping Death” (The Rook Volume One).  For those who don’t remember, that was the story where The Rook teamed up with The Moon Man and gained his signet ring (the one he would sometimes brand the foreheads of criminals with).

Obviously,  Gravedigger and Lazarus Gray are both Sovereign City heroes so you can rightly assume that some of the novel takes place in that locale but there are also scenes in Atlanta (The Rook’s home base) and a good bit of traveling throughout Europe, as well.

Will we get to see some stuff involving the OFP (the Occult Forces Project) that bedeviled The Rook in so many adventures?

Maybe. 🙂

We’ll also see a new threat, a new villain that is powerful enough that it will require all three of my main heroes (plus a number of guest-stars!) to handle the threat.

So when will you see this book?

I’m currently in the stretch run on The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume Five… as soon as this one is finished, I’ll begin writing Götterdämmerung. So you’ll have to wait for me to actually write the book, then you’ll see Gravedigger volume two (already written) and volumes four and five of Lazarus Gray published before you get to see the crossover.

Honestly? That means you’re probably looking at 2015.

But good things come to those who wait, right?

Hope you’re excited about the possibilities.

  1. Sounds great!
    Can’t wait to see these three interact with each other in an epic action sequence!
    Bring on the guest stars! Any hints on who we will see?
    I really like the OFP and want to see this group stirring up trouble for our heroes.
    Can’t wait to read this!
