And so by now you guys hopefully have read and enjoyed DILLON AND THE VOICE OF ODIN: THE 10the ANNIVERSARY EDITION. It was a long road to finally get it out and trust me, there are many people behind the scenes who worked just as hard (if not harder) as me to see that it finally saw print. Who, do you ask? Well, if I told you here then you wouldn’t have incentive to buy a copy and see for yourself, now wouldja?
So what’s next, you ask? Trust me that Dillon’s adventures are going to continue and you need to start putting those pennies in the piggy bank and shorting your kids on their milk money because here’s what’s coming up next:
THE VRIL AGENDA: The team-up between New Pulp hero Dillon and Classic Pulp hero Jim Anthony. Co-written by Josh Reynolds. Last I heard, you’ll be seeing this sometime in 2013.
DILLON AND THE LAST RAIL FROM KHUSRA: Standing at 42,000 words this bad boy is done. The only thing that is left to be done is a final rewrite which should occupy my Labor Day Weekend as I have no plans to go anywhere or do anything else but write, eat, drink and watch movies on Netflix. And then I can let my editors have a whack at it. My plans are to release this as an ebook sometime in September/October.
DILLON AND THE NIGHT OF THE KRAMPUS: My contribution to this year’s Pulpwork Press Christmas Special. It’ll be guest-starring Dillon’s sidekicks Reynard Hansen and Wyatt Hyatt. Look for it to be a lot more comical and action-oriented than last year’s “Dillon and The Night Before Christmas”
DEAD BEAT IN KHUSRA: The long awaited reunion team up of Dillon and Sly Gantlet. It also involves Dillon’s strayed girlfriend Princess Sathyra and the search for a long lost Nazi base buried under the desert sands of a North African country called Khusra….don’t look for this until 2014 as my Birthday Giveaway for that year.
DILLON AND THE MYTH HUNTER: That probably won’t be the title but it’ll do for now. Those of you who have read “Dillon and The Alchemist’s Morning Coffee” will have noticed that Dillon mentioned in that story he has been on some archeological digs with a friend of his named Elisa Hill. Let’s say he stretched the truth a bit. What happens when Elisa Hill is hired to find the location of one of the world’s greatest myths: the location of the Eternal City of Shamballah itself? A secret Dillon is honor bound to protect at all costs? Even if it means the death of a friend? Those of you who want to know more about Elisa Hill need to bounce over to Percival Constantine’s website and check her out for yourself. Look for this one in April/May of 2014.
DILLON AND THE LEGEND OF THE GOLDEN BELL: With a brand new spanking cover by Sean E. Ali this will the Pulpwork Press reissue of that classic title for 2014. You may see it in May/June but don’t hold me to it. It all depend on how fast my lazy ass can do the rewrites on it.
DILLON AND THE DEVIL’S BOUNTY: Which will be the new Dillon novel for 2014 based on a plot by none other than Joshua R. Reynolds! When The Heart of Fortune V, the world’s first self-sustaining seagoing vessel is hijacked by pirates, Dillon is contacted by John Velvet, Director of The Machine to destroy The Heart of Fortune and keep it out of dangerous hands. In order of accomplish this mission Dillon needs the assistance of one of his protégés, the mysteriously dangerous mistress of mayhem and disguise, The Pulptress! But neither one of them could have counted on the participation of the 21st Century incarnation of Fortune McCall! And it may need all their skills and talents to stave of the assault of the various criminal and terrorist organizations seeking to take control of The Heart of Fortune V for their own nefarious purposes!
I also have plans for a DILLON anthology in 2014 and I’ll be contacting individual writers about that. It’ll be a good one, trust me. If you’ve been following the Dillon Facebook Page like you should have been, you’ll know what I’m talking about.
