Over at my official Facebook Fan Page, I have a timeline for my “Reese Unlimited” Universe — basically, the shared world that almost all my characters inhabit. Characters like The Rook, Lazarus Gray, Violet Cambridge, Eobard Grace and many more exist within the same framework and I created this timeline to keep things straight. Feel free to go check it out — but be warned! There are SPOILERS included… so if you haven’t read everything or if you’re the sort who likes to keep surprises for later, you might want to proceed with caution. You can access the timeline here. It’s updated all the time but this version is current as of 9/15/11.

So last night I was a guest on The Book Cave and we talked about The Rook, Lazarus Gray and a lot more. A major announcement was also made about my future association with Pro Se Productions but I’ll make you all wait to hear it on the podcast first. As soon it’s posted, I’ll give a link — should be soon, though. As always, it’s a blast to talk with Ric and Art — and we got in a lot of good Sun Koh conversation with Art, which is always fun.
Also, Bobby Nash, Mike Bullock and I talk about updating classic pulp characters in today’s Table Talk. Go and give it a read!
I’ll be a guest tonight on The Book Cave Podcast. I’ll be joined by Pro Se publisher Tommy Hancock, as we chat with Ric and Art about The Rook Volume Six. I’m sure the conversation will expand to other topics, as well. I’ll post a link to the download site as soon as it’s live!
It’s Monday — so what’s moving and shaking over at amazon.com? Let’s find out!
The five bestselling Barry Reese titles are:
Not much movement from last week, really. A nice mix of work I’ve done over the years, though.
The next person who posts a review of my novel The Damned Thing (positive or negative) on Amazon.com will receive a free signed copy of my next book – Lazarus Gray! All you have to do is post your review and then drop me a line (either comment here or message me via Facebook) to let me know you’ve done so! It’s that simple.
I’ll be a guest on The Book Cave next week, talking about The Rook Volume Six. It’s always great fun to chat with Ric and Art — and this time I’ll be joined by Pro Se’s publisher, Tommy Hancock. I’ll update everybody when the podcast is ready for downloading.
Slowed by a cold right now but work is continuing on my various projects.
As a little aside, the guy at left is named Catalyst. He made his Rook universe debut in a self-titled story that ran in The Rook Volume Three and later joined the loose confederation known as The Claws of the Rook. He’s actually one of my oldest characters — I created him back in 1985 and though his origin has been tweaked over time, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to finally get him into print. Maybe you’ll see Mr. Nathaniel Caine in the future in a project of his own…..

Volume one in the Lazarus Gray series is going to be here soon! It’s going to be released by Pro Se Productions and is part of the Sovereign City Project, in which Tommy Hancock, Derrick Ferguson and I have heroes who share the same base of operations. It’s been a blast so far and I’m currently working on stories that will eventually appear in the THIRD volume of the Lazarus Gray series. Get in on the ground floor of a series that I think will ultimately surpass The Rook in popularity. Cover artwork is by Anthony Castrillo with interior pieces by George Sellas. The lovely lady at the left is Samantha Grace, one of the members of Assistance Unlimited! Longtime fans of my work will recognize that she’s another member of the Grace family, who pop up all through this universe of mine.
