Barry Reese

Pulp Writer Extraordinaire

RU Ad smallerWelcome back to ye olde blog! As I mentioned yesterday, I’ll be attending the Middle Georgia Comic Convention, which is something that I’m very excited about. I’m also continuing to work on the crossover novel, which is slowly (oh so slowly!) approaching the 10,000 word mark. Since I’m aiming for a 60,000 or so novel, that means I’m getting close to the 1/6th mark.

Yeah, I know. I really shouldn’t focus on the word count but it makes me happy and I feel like I’m making progress by tracking it… so there!

Anyway, I’m really enjoying what I have written so far and I think the fans will appreciate it. So far, I’ve been mainly introducing all the heroes (the main cast will be The Rook, Lazarus Gray, Gravedigger, Catalyst (note: this isn’t Nathaniel Caine, who doesn’t become Catalyst until the Forties. This is his predecessor, who will be introduced in Lazarus Gray Volume Five) and The Dark Gentleman. There might be one or two others, as well, but we’ll keep them as surprises for now!

Tales of The Rook Volume Two is now available in print so if you don’t own a Kindle or a Nook or any other tablet, you can get the dead tree version and enjoy the rollicking works of Adam Garcia, James Palmer, Russ Anderson, David White and Sean Taylor! You’ll also get a sneak peek at a script for an animated adventure of The Rook — Pro Se was actively shopping this around at one point but as so many things do, it didn’t come to fruition.

Yet! You never know, after all….

Anyway, I hope everybody has a great day out there and we’ll be back with more pulpy goodness tomorrow.

    Great to here about the progress in your crossover novel and character intros.

    A Rook animated feature would be great! Too bad it hasn’t happened yet. We can only hope to see The Rook (& other Reese Universe characters) crossover into other media.
