CLICKERS FOREVER: A TRIBUTE TO J.F. GONZALEZ Update

Below is the finalized table of contents for the forthcoming CLICKERS FOREVER: A TRIBUTE TO J.F. GONZALEZ anthology, which is approximately 135,000 words (so yeah, it’s a big book). Pre-orders will begin later this summer. You’ll note that the four chapters of “EL PASO” — a semi-autobiographical novel that we, the estate, believed was unfinished — which was previously supposed to be included, have now been removed. That is because a new draft of that novel, called THE CROSSROADS, has been discovered (in the form of a mislabeled Word document). This new draft is still unfinished, but it contains more … Continue reading CLICKERS FOREVER: A TRIBUTE TO J.F. GONZALEZ Update

THE LABYRINTH MYTHOS

I have always been adamant about keeping the Labyrinth Mythos relegated to the background in my works. The idea is that a new reader could start anywhere and not be confused. There’s no suggested reading order. However, for those who … Continue reading THE LABYRINTH MYTHOS
