The fourth volume of Lazarus Gray will be out sometime over the next week or so and I’m thrilled! I can’t wait for you guys to see the final chapter in the storyline that I started with book 2. When all is said and done, you’ll see that Die Glocke, Eidolon and Satan’s Circus are all one sprawling story that redefines what Assistance Unlimited is and can be. I’m pretty darned proud of the result.
I’ve already written the fifth volume and I like to think it’s a fine follow-up to all of that, too!
And, of course, I’m currently writing Lazarus Gray and friends in the crossover novel Götterdämmerung, so it’s not like I’m really taking a break from them at all.
The funny thing is that the first Lazarus book was published in 2011 and the series has already spanned five volumes (three of them published at this point). The Rook is my longest-running series and has six books (plus two anthologies). At this rate, Lazarus should catch and pass The Rook before too long.
Writing Max Davies in the crossover novel has made me wonder if I should return to the character for a novel, though.
In the meantime, let’s take a look at one of the villains of Volume Four — the evil Leviathan! What awful secret does he hold that’s related to the past of Lazarus Gray? Wait until you find out–! Some of you may remember this villain from my story that appeared in The New Adventures of Thunder Jim Wade. Turns out that was only part of the story. You’ll see it expanded to twice its size in this book and see what *really* happened!
